Twitter co-founder Biz Stone has inked a book deal that should give readers pearls of wisdom from the online entrepreneur who helped create the popular social media and microblogging website.
Things a Little Bird Told Me will be published by Hachette's Grand Central Publishing and is scheduled for release in April 2014. The book will be about creativity and different ways of thinking, as demonstrated through Biz's fascinating personal stories from his life and career, according to a publisher statement.
I've found that my experiences resonate with a very wide array of individuals at different stages in their lives, Stone said in a statement. I'm excited to create a physical artifact to share the lessons I've learned.
Stone's previous writings include the 2002 book Blogging: Genius Strategies for Instant Web Content and the 2004 book Who Let The Blogs Out?
Biz Stone cofounded a social networking platform that has changed the way the world collaborates, GCP executive editor Ben Greenberg said in a statement, adding that the book will reveal how his creativity works, and will help readers apply those principles to their own lives.
Stone, who has more than 1.9 million followers on Twitter, has had many honors attributed to him. He and fellow Twitter executive Evan Williams were named two of the top entrepreneurs of the decade by Inc. magazine. His other online business ventures include the blogging website Xanga. He is also a co-founder of The Obvious Corporation.
Lately, it seems as if Stone is enjoying a whole new kind of honor: fatherhood. His own Twitter feed is regularly updated with photos of his baby son, Jake.
