Twitter co-founder Biz Stone has been tapped by AOL as a “strategic adviser,” the company announced today.
Stone’s official title is “strategic adviser for social impact.” In that role, he will be helping AOL “develop a platform to facilitate people doing service in their communities [and] rally other companies to invest in and deploy best corporate practices.” He will also be developing a video series discussing philanthropic and corporate-responsibility efforts on the part of companies and executives.
“My goal in partnering with AOL and The Huffington Post Media Group is ambitious but vitally important,” Stone said in a statement. “Together we will rally companies to think about new ways of doing business, share best practices, and strive for positive impact at all levels—from global to local.”

Twitter, a five-year-old changing the world
SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) At five years old, Twitter is just starting to change the world.
Co-founder Jack Dorsey fired off the first tweet on March 21, 2006. It read “just setting up my twttr.” It was Dorsey who proposed the idea for Twitter while working with Biz Stone and Evan Williams at podcasting company Odeo.
Since then, Twitter has been embraced as a forum for sharing anything from a favorite lunch spot to violations of civil rights and calls for revolution.
pretty lofty goal..
If he lives in Berkeley he also has a nipple ring, a water bed, and a prescription for medical marijuana.
