During the launching of iTunes podcasting by Apple, which made Odeo podcasting platform irrelevant. Evan and Biz and Jack Dorsey decided to make something called twitter instead. Upon knowing this, Odeo’s investors didn’t like the proposal but Evan make it to the point to get their vote by buying back all the stock. Twitter was really implemented through an entrepreneur named Noah Glass and the history begun six years ago.
