NEW YORK (AP) - AOL says Biz Stone, one of the founders of messaging service Twitter, is joining AOL and its recent acquisition The Huffington Post Media Group as an adviser on “social impact and cause-based initiatives.”

AOL Inc. CEO Tim Armstrong said Monday that Stone will be advising on “using innovative approaches to do good and give back.”

Huffington Post also says it’s hiring veteran John Montorio as culture and entertainment editor, as well as 10 new reporters.

On Thursday, AOL said Thursday it will slash 900 jobs worldwide, or nearly 20 percent of its work force, partly to eliminate overlap stemming from the acquisition of Huffington Post, which closed a week ago.
