Two executives at Twitter are leaving the company for other jobs.
Both Twitter Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Adam Messinger and Vice President of Product Josh McFarland made the announcement Tuesday via tweets.
After 5 years I’ve decided to leave Twitter and take some time off. Grateful to @jack for the opportunity and to my team for shipping.

McFarland, who has worked for the tech company for roughly 18 months, is joining Greylock Partners, a venture capital firm that invests in businesses and startups. While Messinger has been working at the company for around five years, with almost four of those years as CTO. He has not revealed where he will work following his departure.
This is the fourth high-level employee to quit in approximately a month and a half.
Chief Operating Officer (COO) Adam Bain made public he was leaving the company in November after being at Twitter since 2010.
After 6 years and a once-in-a-lifetime run, I let Jack know that I am ready to change gears and do something new outside the company.

Bain was referring to Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter in his tweet.
Adam Sharp, the director of media partnerships and head of news, government and elections, also used Twitter earlier this month to announce that he was leaving the company.
Twitter did not respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
