After becoming a member of Twitter three years ago to run its communications team, former Googler Gabriel Stricker has stepped down from the place. There’s no phrase on whether or not he left on his own, was once pushed out…or each, which tends to happen in excessive-profile adjustments like this.
Fittingly, Stricker “spoke back” to his authentic tweet about becoming a member of the company with his goodbye:
Thanks @Twitter for a unprecedented trip. It remains to be rather more than an organization. #motion

A Twitter spokesperson shared this commentary with us:
It remains to be crucial that we show the sector the worth of Twitter. Communications is a key component to that, and to lend a hand build toward a more robust future, we’re having a look now to shift our communications technique and course. We Can be bringing in new leadership, and we thank Gabriel for his contributions.
Comms on Comms. At All Times enjoyable.
This isn’t the primary govt to leave Twitter during the last month or so. Its CEO Dick Costolo decided it was once time to fly the coop, as neatly.
At one point, Stricker was head of each communications and advertising and marketing, with the marketing section being stripped away as Not Too Long Ago as ultimate year. His authentic title was “CCO” or Chief Communications Officer and his nonetheless-current government bio on Twitter.com reads:

Prior To joining Twitter in 2012, Gabriel worked as Director of global Communications and Public Affairs at Google. Gabriel refined his experience in strategic communications thru his work Within The electoral enviornment, having performed a key position on campaigns for political and governmental purchasers world wide.

Stricker replaced Sean Garrett who left the company in 2011.
There are any number of possible replacements for his position, with some interior candidates that would make experience. Lately, Twitter comms veteran Carolyn Penner made the move to run communications and advertising and marketing for Twitter-got Vine, so the crew is clearly shaking itself up because it grows.
Twitter isn’t simply the 140-character field anymore. There are analytics, advertisements and things that greater companies need to weave into their messaging and Conversation methods. Twitter’s self-admittedly never excelled at explaining itself or discovering the correct way to make itself palatable to a much wider audience.
While at Google, Marissa Mayer trusted Stricker with the notorious (now deleted, alas) “acquisition Haiku” tweet:
