From GQ’s Nerd of the Year to one of Time’s most influential people in the world, Biz Stone represents different things to different people. But he is known to all as the creative, effervescent, funny, and remarkably savvy co-founder of Twitter—the social media platform that singlehandedly changed the way the world works. Now, Biz tells fascinating, pivotal, and personal stories from his life and career, sharing his knowledge about the nature and importance of ingenuity today. In Biz’s world:

  • Opportunity can be manufactured
  • Great work comes from abandoning a linear way of thinking
  • Creativity never runs out, use it as often as you want
  • Asking questions is free. Do it!

In this book, Biz also addresses failure, the value of vulnerability, ambition, and how to learn from negative experiences (he’s had many). Whether seeking behind-the-scenes stories, advice, or wisdom and principles from one of the most successful businessmen of the new century, Things a Little Bird Told Me will satisfy every reader.
