Last week, it was rumored that Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey would be making a return to the company on a full-time basis. This was confirmed today by Dorsey himself.
Don't worry about Square though. He's still doing that too. Seems like a pretty full plate taking on a day-to-day gig at one of the web's most significant companies and leading one of the most talked about startups in the growing payments sector.
#200%Today I'm thrilled to get back to work at @Twitter leading product as Executive Chairman. And yes: leading @Square forevermore as CEO.
Dorsey's Twitter colleagues appear to be pretty amped to have him back.
Excited that Twitter Chairman @jack will be returning to the company day-to-day leading product as Executive Chairman
The truth is, the real @jack doesn't work at @twitter or @square. He's working 100% at his cloning startup. The results are impressive.
#200% mode! 🙂 RT @jack: Today I'm thrilled to get back to work at @Twitter leading product as Executive Chairman...[cont].@jack w/ you in
Looking forward to this!!! "@jack: Today I'm thrilled to get back to work at @Twitter leading product as Executive Chairman..."
It's a little surprising that no mentions of Dorsey have appeared in tweets from his fellow co-founders Evan Williams and Biz Stone, at this point, but Stone hasn't even tweeted in five days.
In addition to welcoming Dorsey back, Twitter is also expanding its staff by 25 more people. From Twitter HR:
In honor of @ladygaga's 25th birthday, @Twitter welcomes 25 new hires! 😉 welcome, new peeps!
