Foad Dabiri, Twitter’s chief IT engineer, said he resigned after four years at the social network. In motivating his decision, Dabiri limited himself to saying that he resigned on Wednesday and cited the big changes that took place in the company after the takeover by Elon Musk.
Also on Wednesday, the social network had major problems during a live audio in which the governor of Florida Ron DeSantis officially announced his candidacy for president of the United States. The announcement was made on Twitter Space, a particular function of the site which essentially consists of live audio, and immediately there were numerous technical problems. Both Twitter and its boss Elon Musk had received a lot of criticism for the platform’s malfunctions.
It’s not known whether Dabiri’s resignation had anything to do with Twitter’s malfunctions on Wednesday, and the company hasn’t commented on Dabiri’s decision.
