The post of head of product development has been vacant for some time at Twitter, which has been struggling to boost its user base and turn a profit.
Yes Inc stated, “Our team has always admired Twitter, a product that brings the whole world closer. From elections to revolutions, Olympics to arts, it connects people across the globe around the events that are happening right now. Twitter also speaks to our love of working at a global scale.”
The Blog post stated,”In the coming weeks, we’ll be shutting down our apps so that we can focus entirely on our new efforts. We are sad to see them go, but excited about the future.” (Photo-New York Times / Bryan Thomas)
