Twitter co-founder Biz Stone has closed a Series B financing round for his Jelly app. The said round was led by Greylock Partners. Spark Capital also participated in the investment, according to TechCrunch.

The funding round comes less than a year after the app closed a Series A round from Greylock, Spark, and Jack Dorsey. The amounts raised in both rounds are both undisclosed, but the Series A funding was rumored to be a few million, the report added.

Jelly, which launched early January, is basically a human-powered, image-driven discovery and search parsing app. 

Greylock Partner Josh Elman gave a little peek into what Jelly can do: "As I played with the product during the early days, I had a few experiences that had me thankful I had Jelly. Someone on Jelly helped me realize I had a leak in my shower based on a spot on my siding 20 feet below. I was able to help others with planning trips and shopping for the perfect new monitor."

Elman, who was a former Twitter product manager, will become a member of Jelly's board. Other investors in the Series B round include Bono, Jason Goldman, Evan Williams, Al Gore, Greg Yaitanes, and Roya Mahboob, TechCrunch reported.
