Twitter, Inc. Key Developments

Twitter Names Leslie Berland as Chief Marketing Officer

Twitter appointed its first chief marketing officer, Leslie Berland, who will spearhead a much-needed marketing push for the social network as it tries to buoy its user growth. Chief executive Jack Dorsey announced the hire on his Twitter account, saying that Berland, previously a marketing executive at American Express, will be charged with helping to tell the stories of iconic product. Marketing had previously fallen under the duties of Twitter's chief finance officer, Anthony Noto. But the company has publicly been looking to hire its first dedicated chief marketing officer since July. At American Express, Berland has been the executive vice president in charge of global advertising, marketing and digital advertising. She was the company's top pick, according to a Sunday report from Recode. She will have a vital role to play for Twitter, which is in the midst of a major effort to make itself more palatable to the general public. While Twitter is very popular with its devoted core users, it still doesn't reach as many people as rival services such as Facebook or LinkedIn.

Twitter Announces Executive Changes

Twitter has appointed its commerce chief Nathan Hubbard as interim media head. Hubbard's appointment comes after chief exec Jack Dorsey confirmed media head Katie Jacobs Stanton, product vice president Kevin Weil and engineering head Alex Roetter were all flying the coop. He also said Skip Schipper, the company's head of HR, will be leaving too.

Twitter Announces Major Executive Shakeup

Twitter announced a major shakeup, as several top executives leave have left the company: Skip Schipper, vice president of global media. With these top executives leaving, Dorsey said that chief operating officer Adam Bain will now oversee media, human resources and "revenue-related" products on a temporary basis. Chief technology officer Adam Messinger will take on a number of product-related duties, including the company's mobile development platform, Fabric.
