Twitter Loses Top Exec

Michael Sippey is leaving the company, but will continue to play an advisary role

Michael Sippey, one of Twitter’s top execs, is leaving the company after two years. He is one of the main players in Twitter’s purchase of Vine.

Sippey will continue to advise Twitter on product strategy, he said, reports CNET.

“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,” Sippey wrote in an email, referring to the discussions he’s had with Dick Costolo, Twitter’s CEO (Chief executive officer) and Ali Rowghani, COO (Chief operating officer).

Sippey, Twitter’s vice president of product, will continue to advise the company on product strategy and to help out in the search for his replacement.
