Jack Dorsey resigns as Twitter CEO

In an unexpected announcement, Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey confirmed that he would resign as CEO and that Parag Agarwal (now former CTO) would soon become CEO.

He is curious, scrutinized, rational, creative, demanding, self-aware and humble. He leads with heart and soul and is the one I learn every day. My trust in him as our CEO is very deep.

Brett Taylor is currently appointed chairman of Twitter’s board, Jack Dorsey will remain on Twitter’s board until May 2022, after which Dorsey will leave Twitter. “I think it’s important for the company to be self-reliant, free from the influence and direction of the founder,” Dorsey said in an email.

This is my decision and I want you to know that I own it. Of course, that was a big deal for me. I love this service and company … and you love it very much. I’m really sad … but still really happy. Not many companies reach this level. And not many founders choose their company over their ego. Prove that this was the right move.
