Jack Dorsey to step down as Twitter CEO

Jack Dorsey will step down as CEO of Twitter, the company announced Monday. He will be succeeded by CTO Parag Agrawal.

The big picture: Dorsey is also the CEO of financial payments company Square, which he co-founded in 2009, and has become a crypto evangelist in recent years.

Our thought bubble, via Axios’ Scott Rosenberg: Twitter’s messaging service was Dorsey’s idea 15 years ago, and he led the company through a period of endless controversy surrounding former President Trump’s use of the social media site as a personal megaphone.

– Today, the service sits at the center of the U.S. news ecosystem and has gathered much of the real-time energy of social media, but Twitter has never achieved anything close to Facebook’s financial success or scale.
