Rishi Garg Twitter

Twitter’s vice president of corporate development and strategy, Rishi Garg has quit to “pursue some exciting new projects.” He was in-charge of mergers & acquisitions at Twitter and during his tenure the microblogging major completed about 12 acquisitions, including Bangalore-based mobile marketing and analytics company Zipdial, live streaming app Periscope, TellApartJoinNiche, and machine learning startup Whetlab among others. The company is also reportedly in talks to buy Flipboard for $1 billion. This was first reported by Re/code.

Garg joined Twitter a little over a year back from digital payments company Square, where he was engaged in a similar role. Interestingly, Square was founded by Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, who is incidentally now serving as the interim CEO of Twitter, after CEO Dick Costolo stepped down. Garg had joined Square in 2012 and played a key role in the partnership the mobile payments company formed with T-Mobile
