Twitter’s Chief Operating Officer Ali Rowghani has stepped down in a management shakeup first reported by technology news site Re/code.
“Goodbye Twitter. It's been an amazing ride, and I will cherish the memories,” Mr. Rowghani posted on Twitter Thursday morning.
Lackluster growth combined with a recent large stock sale by Mr. Rowghani have prompted the microblogging service to evaluate the need of a COO, Re/code said, citing sources.
Chloe Sladden, Twitter’s North America media head, who reports to Mr. Rowghani, has been reorganizing her unit and she may be preparing to leave the company, the website said.
Representatives at Twitter did not immediately respond to an e-mail seeking comment.
Twitter’s first-quarter results in April revealed slowing momentum at the company that exuberant investors just six months ago had argued could one day match Facebook’s scale.
