“The former chief executive officer of the beleaguered social network Twitter has a new job that some might view as a promotion — contributor to the writers room on HBO’s hit show ‘Silicon Valley,’” reports BloombergBusiness.

The story adds, “In an interview on Bloomberg TV, show creator Mike Judge said the writers use [former Twitter CEO Dick] Costolo as a sounding board to ensure that story lines are plausible. ‘He’s a funny guy,’ Judge said in the interview, taped at a Vanity Fair conference in San Francisco. ‘It’s just great to be able to be spinning stories, coming up with ideas, and just go, “Hey, Dick, would this ever happen?”’”

Interestingly, Costolo also used to be a stand-up comic, the article says.
