Biz Stone is coming back to Twitter.
Biz announced the news in a Medium post last week where he said he’ll “be filling the Biz-shaped hole” created when he left the company.
It’s unclear exactly what his role will be but he said his “top focus will be to guide the company culture, that energy, that feeling.”
Twitter is in need a morale boost due to failed developments and various top executive departures. In the last year Twitter has lost COO Adam Bain, CTO Adam Messinger, product leads Noah Pepper and Jinen Kamdar as well as the loss of a key NFL streaming deal and the inability to find a buyer.
I’m personally of the belief that Twitter is bound for a grand comeback. Perhaps this is the beginning of that.
