Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey has had his role “reduced” after co-worker complaints alleging that he is “difficult to work with” and “repeatedly changed his mind about product directions.”
Dorsey returned to Twitter as an executive chairman after a two-and-a-half year hiatus from the day-to-day operations, though The New York Times tells us that Dorsey will see his responsibilities shrink due to co-worker complaints filed against him. He will still be involved in strategic decisions as an executive chairman, but no one will directly report to him anymore.
Dorsey, who is also a co-founder of mobile payments system Square, reportedly left Twitter back in 2008 over the site’s then-frequent multi-hour outages. Twitter rarely experiences any downtime these days.
The story also claims that Twitter may be following in Facebook’s footsteps and become a public company as soon as 2014. Twitter CEO Dick Costolo told CNBC last month that going public is “not something we’re focused on right now,” but insiders suggest that an IPO may hit sooner than Costolo is letting on.
