Twitter COO Rowghani resigns

Ali Rowghani, Twitter's (TWTR -1.1%) COO since Dec. 2012 and before that its CFO, has resigned from his position, but will "continue to be a Twitter employee and act as a strategic advisor to the CEO." (8-K)

The company doesn't expect to name a replacement. Rowghani's responsibilities will be handled by other Twitter execs going forward.

The shakeup comes as Twitter pulls out all the stops to boost slowing user growth/engagement amid worries the microblogging service (255M MAUs) will never have the same kind of mass appeal as Facebook (1.28B MAUs).

Shortly before the announcement, re/code reported Twitter "has already made some moves to shift responsibility from Rowghani," such as handing product responsibilities to the newly-hired Daniel Graf.

    It's about time that Twitter start getting rid of deadweight. Resigning is only a polite way to secure his departure while ensuring his payoffs. Twitter needs to come clean about its absurd expenditures before regaining support from the investing public.
