From an email I sent to Twitter earlier today:
2013 was a fantastic year for Twitter. You all should be very proud of the great work we did.
As we head into 2014, I’ve had a chance to reflect on what’s important to me and what I love to do. I’ve spent most of my career working at startups, helping them scale and having a direct hand on the product. Over the past few weeks I’ve talked with Dick and Ali about what I want next in my career, and what Twitter needs at this stage of its life. And I’ve decided that it’s time for me to move on.
Starting today I’m transitioning to an advisory role. I’ll be helping with product strategy, providing input on the great work the team has lined up for 2014, and helping Ali find a new head of product. After that, I’m excited to go figure out what’s next. I hear this Internet thing has legs.
I am deeply grateful for having had the opportunity to work with an amazing team on one of the most important products on the planet. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
