Internet company AOL Inc. said Twitter Co-Founder Biz Stone will become a “social impact” strategic adviser for the company, as part of its broader integration with online news site the Huffington Post.

Mr. Stone will work on cause-based initiatives, such as creating a system to help people volunteer in their communities and a video series featuring companies committed to philanthropy.

The Internet entrepreneur is well-known in Silicon Valley as one of Twitter’s chief evangelists and most prominent spokespeople.

In a statement Monday, Mr. Stone—who is staying at Twitter—said he was partnering with the Huffington Post in order to “rally companies to think about new ways of doing business.”
