Evan Williams, Biz Stone and Jason Goldman Restart Obvious.com - Liz Gannes - News - AllThingsD

The Twitter alumni club reanimates Twitter’s original home, with a simple mission statement: “The Obvious Corporation develops systems that help people work together to improve the world.”  Meanwhile, Square, current Twitter exec Jack Dorsey’s other company, raises a $100M third round of funding.

Stone said in a personal blog post today that he was relaunching Obvious Corporation, the incubator that shepherded Twitter out of the podcasting start-up Odeo and into an independent company.

Joining him to relaunch Obvious are familiar faces Williams — also a Twitter co-founder and its former CEO — and Goldman — former head of product at Twitter.

Just a year ago, these three were at the core of Twitter’s executive team, but the company is now led by CEO Dick Costolo.
