How did Jack Dorsey, Ev William and Biz Stone split up the equity on Twitter when they restructured Twitter (post-Odeo)? - Quora
The initial employees got somewhere between 0.5% and 1.5%, Jack got something like 5% to 15%, and Biz probably got something similar. All of these were FOUNDERS SHARES, common stock, not preferred, but also not options. It might seem small, but it was extremely generous of Ev. It was his company and his money.

What's the story of how Twitter got started at Odeo? - Quora
When it became clear that Odeo was not going to become a huge success in the podcasting space, there was a period of soul searching and hack days. One of those hack days, Jack, Noah, and Florian (another rails dev at Odeo), created Twitter.  The initial version seemed interesting, Noah, Jack, and Florian kept working on it for several months, while the rest of the team stayed focused on Odeo.

At this time, there were various efforts to sell Odeo, which didn't pan out. It became clear that the development team was bigger than was needed to experiment with Twitter and maintain Odeo. So the VP of Product, Tim Roberts, VP of Engineering, Tony Stubblebine, myself, and Dom who was running QA, left.

How Twitter's owners and top executives say Twitter was founded is different than how Twitter was actually founded.

An Interview With Twitter's Forgotten Founder, Noah Glass - Nicholas Carlson, Business Insider
Noah Glass is the Twitter cofounder you've never heard of. He was pushed out of the company way back in 2006. Before that he was the cofounder of a startup called Odeo. He had an investor who would become cofounder and CEO, Ev Williams.

Twitter Was Act One | Business | Vanity Fair
“It was a podcasting company. I had no interest in podcasting. It turns out no one in the company did, either.”

Very interesting read on Jack Dorsey and, by extension, the history of Twitter from his perspective.

Odeo Releases Twttr
But the fact that this is coming from Odeo makes me wonder – what is this company doing to make their core offering compelling? How do their shareholders feel about side projects like Twttr when their primary product line is, besides the excellent design, a total snoozer?
