Twitter has announced the departure of four top executives just a few months after co-founder Jack Dorsey was reinstated as chief executive officer. Alex Roetter, senior vice president of engineering; Brian “Skip” Schipper, vice president of human resources; Katie Stanton, vice president of global media; and Kevin Weil, senior vice president of product have chosen to leave the company. The announcement made Sunday evening has sent Twitter into a frenzy on the stock market, trading lower today than its close on Friday. There have been rumors that the company will be sold after announcing in October that it would cut 336 jobs or 8% of its global workforce. Twitter has now lost 8 of its executives over the last year.
