Twitter chief executive Jack Dorsey has confirmed the exit of a large swath of the company's leadership team, including product head Kevin Weil and media boss Katie Stanton.
In a tweet late on Sunday ET, Dorsey said he had hoped to talk to Twitter employees later in the week about the departures, but that given the "inaccurate press rumors" about the departures, he wanted to set the record straight.
"I'm sad to announce that Alex Roetter, Skip Schipper, Katie Stanton and Kevin Weil have chosen to leave the company," Dorsey said in an elongated "Tweenjoy" tweet, adding that "all four will be taking some well-deserved time off.
I'm personally grateful to each of them for everything they've contributed to Twitter and our purpose in the world. They are phenomenal people!"
Following the departure of Katie Stanton as head of media, Twitter's head of commerce, Nathan Hubbard, was named head of media on an interim basis, according to a source close to the situation told CNBC. This was announced in an email to employees from Dorsey. The email also mentions that Twitter management is having a retreat in San Francisco starting tomorrow to discuss the future of the company.
A CMO is expected to be announced sometime this this week, according to the source.
A company spokesperson told Reuters on Monday that Twitter will not replace product head Kevin Weil.
Roetter ran the company's engineering business and Schipper was vice president of human resources.
