Twitter's vice president of product, Michael Sippey has announced via a Tweet of course that he is leaving the company.
In the short term he will be transitioning to an advisory role at Twitter, but in his blog he confirmed that the medium-term plan is to leave the company.
He said that the decision came after talks with the company directors and what he wants in his career and what Twitter needs at this stage in its development.
It's clear that he sees his future elsewhere, and maybe Twitter felt it needed someone different to help drive the company into profitability.
He confirmed that he will still be helping with product strategy, providing input on the great work the team has lined up for 2014, and helping Ali Rowghani find a new head of product
Today I'm transitioning into an advisory role at Twitter. It's been an amazing couple of years: http://t.co/jPpZ6fOyBh— Michael Sippey (@sippey) January 17, 2014
