It was the idea of individuals using Twitter for creative purposes that inspired the platform's co-founder Biz Stone to create it.
"I'm a people person," he told HuffPost Live's Caroline Modarressy Tehrani in an interview on Tuesday to promote his book "Things A Little Bird Told Me." "I found out that the thing I like most -- the thing that I like to do the most is help other people. That just gives me joy. And, you know, you could say that with Twitter I was helping people have freedom of expression."
That's the reason building Twitter was a thrill.
"It's wonderful when you discover what you really love, because than you can just go for it," he said.
Stone seems to be doing just that. He recently developed Jelly, a social Q&A app for iPhones.
"Once you know what you want to do with your life, you feel empowered," he concluded.
