Twitter Co-Founder Vacates Position on Board

One of Twitter’s co-founders Ev Williams is leaving the company’s board.

In a statement contained in a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing announcing his departure, Williams said it had been an incredible 13 years with the company.

He also explains he is proud of what Twitter had accomplished during his time with the company.

In a series of tweets, he also explains this move and went on to appreciate his colleagues.

Williams also explains he is moving on to other projects. He, however, did not state what these projects are.

Williams is the founder and CEO of a publishing platform Medium, which he founded in 2012. He had earlier stated his interest in acquiring New York Magazine and “other media properties”.

Twitter is yet to comment on who may replace Williams on the board. But Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and fellow co-founder Biz Stone have wished him well.
