Biz Stone, who grew up in Wellesley and later co-founded social media sensation Twitter, has announced he is leaving the microblogging site to focus on new ventures.
The 1992 Wellesley High grad, who returned this spring to deliver a commencement address at Babson College, wrote in part:
“My plan is to take a bit more time to focus on helping schools, nonprofits, and company advisory boards as well as The Biz and Livia Stone Foundation. I’ll still commit part of my time to hands on help with Twitter wherever and whenever I can be of assistance.
“As for the bulk of my time day-to-day, I’m thrilled to announce that Evan Williams, Jason Goldman and myself will be relaunching The Obvious Corporation as co-founders. Our plan is to develop new projects and work on solving big problems aligned along a simple mission statement: The Obvious Corporation develops systems that help people work together to improve the world. This is a dream come true!”
