Twitter’s new CEO Parag Agrawal, who succeeded Jack Dorsey, hastily set about reorganizing the company’s structure. As part of this activity, a number of personnel changes have already been announced.
After the change of the CEO, Twitter began a large-scale reorganization
Twitter announced that “to improve accountability, speed and operational efficiency, the company has created general manager positions who will lead all of the core teams in R&D, product management, design and research”.
We know that Kayvon Beykpour, a former product manager, will take over as Twitter’s general manager of consumer affairs. Sales chief Bruce Falk will take over as general manager of revenue; while Twitter’s VP of development Nick Caldwell will become general manager of core technology. Twitter’s VP of Strategy and Operations Lindsey Iannucci became Chief of Staff and VP of Operations. Laura Yagerman became head of corporate communications.
It was also announced that Twitter lead engineer Michael Montano and head of design and research Dantley Davis will be leaving the company before the end of the year. Earlier this week, Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey announced his departure from the company.

Twitter has banned the posting of images and videos of individuals without their consent
“When we receive notification from the persons portrayed or an authorized representative that they have not consented to the publication of their personal image or video, we will remove it,” Twitter said.
The social platform has previously prohibited users from sharing other people’s personal information without permission; such as address or location, identity documents, non-public contact information, financial information, or medical information.
Jack Dorsey, founder and CEO of Twitter has recently stepped down. Against the backdrop of this news, shares of the social network rose by more than 11%. Dorsey was the CEO of Twitter and Square. We do not know the reasons why he decided to leave the post of head of Twitter. It is surprising that the market reaction was positive to the news of Dorsey’s departure, as he did a lot for the company.
