In a major executive upheaval, two of Twitter's top executives — media head Katie Jacobs Stanton and product head Kevin Weil — are departing the company, according to sources close to the situation.
Neither has immediate plans to go to another company, added sources, but are expected to. Right now, the jobs of both Weil and Stanton will be filled with interim replacements.
In what is shaping up to be a big executive upheaval tomorrow, Twitter engineering head Alex Roetter is also departing the company, according to sources. Twitter's director of product Jason Toff is also leaving the company, he said in a tweet.
Fasten your seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy night and then day and then day after that. Also the day after that. You get the idea of the tumult about to pummel the San Francisco social communications company, from both inside and outside.
A Twitter spokesperson declined to comment.
There have been rumblings of the changes for weeks now inside the San Francisco social communications company. Sources said Twitter is planning to announce the shuffle tomorrow, along with the hire of a prominent CMO.
