Evan Williams, Twitter co-founder who is presently CEO of Medium (publishing platform), is stepping down from Twitter’s panel, as per a new filing with the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission). Williams will formally leave the firm by the end of month. “It has been an incredible 13 Years, and I am proud of what the firm has achieved during my time with it,” Williams claimed to the media in an interview. “I will carry on rooting for the team as I will aim my time on other programs.”
Williams co-established Twitter with Biz Stone and Jack Dorsey in 2007 after the social network lingered from other projects that the team operated on together at Odeo (the podcasting firm). In 2008, Williams became the Twitter CEO, restoring Dorsey, and was later restored by Dick Costolo in 2010, as documented by tell-all betrayal-filled Hatching Twitter by Nick Bilton. In spite of all the backstabbing, Williams has served on the firm’s panel from the origin, summing up 12 Years.
