Recall that the previous Vice-President for product Twitter Jeff Siebert left this post in June. He returned to the management platform, Fabric, which involved to improve.
Within the company permanent replacement Siebert was not found. So Twitter has opened the vacancy to find a suitable candidate outside. Temporarily the acting head of the product was appointed senior development Director Ed Ho.
