Biz Stone, who departed Twitter in 2011, is the co-founder and CEO of Jelly, which has developed a mobile app that allows user questions to be answered by other users. Users can send queries either by text or by sharing a photo with friends from other social networks like Facebook (FB) and Twitter, Reuters notes.
