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.

Representatives at Twitter did not immediately respond to an e-mail seeking comment.
