Social media platform Twitter said on Friday one of its co-founders, Evan Williams, will be stepping down as a member of its board at the end of the month.
Williams co-founded Twitter in 2007 with Jack Dorsey and Biz Stone after the social network spun out from other projects that the group worked on together at podcasting company Odeo.
In 2008, Williams became the CEO of Twitter, replacing Dorsey, and was later replaced in 2010 by Dick Costolo (who would later be pushed out by none other than Dorsey). Despite all the backstabbing, Williams has served on Twitter’s board from the beginning, totaling 12 years.
Soon after news broke, Williams who is currently the CEO of publishing platform ‘Medium’ sent out a tweet thanking his colleagues saying he was lucky to serve on the board for so long and it was educating, interesting and very challenging.
