Twitter Co-founder Biz Stone Signs Book Deal With Grand Central

Twitter co-founder Biz Stone has inked a book deal with Hachette’s Grand Central Publishing. Grand Central’s executive editor Ben Greenberg acquired the world rights to the book from literary agent Lydia Wills.

Greenberg explained in the release: “Biz Stone cofounded a social networking platform that has changed the way the world collaborates. Things A Little Bird Told Me will reveal how his creativity works, and will help readers apply those principles to their own lives.”

AppNewser has more about the book, which is slated for release in April 2014: “In the book, Stone will talk about his experience, which includes a stint at Google, co-founding Twitter and his latest venture The Obvious Corporation, a company that he co-founded in 2011 that is focused on ‘building systems that help people work together to make the world smarter, healthier.’”
