Jack Dorsey Back at Twitter, Still at Square, Twitter Hires 25 More

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.

Today I’m thrilled to get back to work at @Twitter leading product as Executive Chairman. And yes: leading @Square forevermore as CEO. #200% 1 hour ago via Twitter for iPhone · powered by @socialditto

Dorsey’s Twitter colleagues appear to be pretty amped to have him back.

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. 2 hours ago via Twitter for Mac · powered by @socialditto

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! 52 minutes ago via web · powered by @socialditto
