Top Twitter engineering boss quits just one day after chaotic DeSantis launch glitch
An engineering boss at Twitter has announced his departure from the company just one day after technical glitches plagued the launch of Ron DeSantis’ US presidential campaign on the platform.
Foad Dabiri severed as the engineering lead for Twitter’s Growth organisation. He did not provide any specific reason for his departure. Dabiri tweeted: “After almost four incredible years at Twitter, I decided to leave the nest yesterday.”
Dabiri had worked through the transition of the company after it was bought by billionaire Elon Musk for $44bn. Since Musk bought the company, there has been significant workforce reductions, with 80% of employees being cut.
In another post, Mr Dabiri said the transition into Twitter’s “2.0” was “massive and rapid”.
He added: “To say it was challenging at the outset would be an understatement.”
However, Mr Dabiri said: “Working with @elonmusk has been highly educational, and it was enlightening to see how his principles and vision are shaping the future of this company.”
