Twitter Founder is "Un-Pivoting" His Failed Q&A App

By Kate Knibbs on at

Biz “Stonecold” Stone — founder of Twitter, author of Who Let The Blogs Out? — is bringing back his short-lived Q&A/search engine app Jelly for some reason.

Jelly was Stone’s post-Twitter project, an app that let you anonymously ask other users questions and anonymously answer questions they posed. It had a buzzy launch, buoyed by Stone and a list of high-profile backers. Even Bono invested in it.

Despite the hype, Jelly quickly flatlined in 2014. Stone has now published a Medium post — because he also founded Medium — saying that Jelly had gone away for a lil’ while but he is performing an “un-pivot” and he will relaunch it soon.
