Twitter's chief technology officer announced in a tweet Tuesday that he was leaving the company after five years.
After 5 years I've decided to leave Twitter and take some time off. Grateful to @jack for the opportunity and to my team for shipping.-- Adam Messinger (@adam_messinger) December 20, 2016
Amid months of declining user growth and the company's inability to sell itself to suitors like Alphabet, Disney and Salesforce, Twitter has experienced an exodus in top management. Vice president of product Josh McFarland also announced on Tuesday via Twitter that he would be leaving the company to join Greylock Partners. The venture firm backed McFarland's advertising platform, TellApart, until Twitter bought it in 2015. In November, Twitter's chief operating officer Adam Bain also resigned.
But executives aren't the only ones leaving the company. In October, Twitter cut 9 percent of its staff--about 350 jobs total. It also shut down the wildly popular video app Vine. The share price for the 140-character messaging service has dropped nearly 20 percent since January.
