Twitter’s COO Adam Bain resigns from the company


Twitter’s COO Adam Bain has resigned, reports New York Times. Bain’s responsibilities will be managed by the company’s CFO Anthony Noto who will also be the COO. According to the report, Twitter will be looking for a new CFO. The microblogging platform had also considered Bain for the CEO role, which ultimately Jack Dorsey, the company’s co-founder took up in October last year. Currently, it is unclear where Bain will join next.

Bain had joined Twitter in September 2010 as the president of global revenue and partnerships and was in the role for over 6 years. He was appointed as the chief operating officer in September last year and was given additional responsibilities including the revenue related products teams, the media team and the HR team on an interim basis in January this year when 5 of Twitter’s senior executives left the company. Prior to joining Twitter, Bain worked with Fox Interactive Media, Fox Sports, Los Angeles Times and Cleveland.com for a collective 15.5 years.
