Three Senior Twitter Employees Leave amid Potential Musk Takeover

Three Senior Twitter Employees Leave amid Potential Musk Takeover

It appears that some of the platform’s execs are prepared to go as Elon Musk tweets feces emojis at Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal. Ilya Brown, VP of product management for health, conversation, and growth; Katrina Lane, VP of Twitter Service; and Max Schmeiser, director of data science, are reportedly departing the business willingly. According to LinkedIn, Brown has been employed by Twitter for six years, compared to Lane and Schmeiser’s one and two years of employment, respectively.

These departures were verified on Twitter. “Our goal is to continue giving Twitter users the greatest possible experience. We can affirm that they will go from Twitter in search of fresh possibilities. A spokeswoman told TechCrunch, “We appreciate all of their hard work and leadership.

Not merely because of Musk’s uncertainty over his proposed $44 billion purchase, there have been several changes at Twitter’s executive level in recent weeks. Agrawal fired two important employees only last week: the head of product Kayvon Beykpour, who was on maternity leave at the time, and the revenue product lead Bruce Falck. Agrawal, who has just been CEO for six months, requested that Beykpour depart because he wants to “move the team in a different path,” according to Beykpour.

Agrawal’s tenure as CEO is coming to an end since Musk has said that if he does purchase Twitter, he would appoint a new CEO. Agrawal posted on Twitter, “Some have been wondering why a ‘lame-duck’ CEO would make these adjustments if we’re getting purchased regardless. “While I anticipate the deal to be completed, we must be ready for any eventuality and always act in Twitter’s best interests. I’m responsible for managing and running Twitter, and our goal is to make it better every day. Musk is now taking his time buying Twitter, saying that the transaction is “on hold” due to the problem of spam bots.

In contrast to Elon Musk, who is most likely to become the company’s owner in the near future, Twitter’s new CEO Parag Agrawal has mainly kept quiet throughout the company’s continuous rollercoaster ride. But after a particularly turbulent week at the firm, during which he ousted two important executives—head Twitter’s of product Keyvon Beykpour and Bruce Falck, who oversaw the business’s revenue—Agrawal finally spoke out.

The unexpected decision, which came while he was on paternity leave, was made, according to Beykpour, “not how and when I imagined leaving Twitter, and this wasn’t my decision.” Agrawal requested that Beykpour leave the firm because he wanted to “move the consumer team in a different path,” according to Beykpour. Agrawal skillfully conveyed a lot without really saying much in his last Twitter thread, a classic CEO trait that his frequently casual, spontaneous predecessor lacked.
