Twitter to lose two company leaders, pauses hiring

Twitter Chief Executive Parag Agrawal has announced in an email to employees that the company’s leaders for the consumer division and revenue are leaving.

The news comes as billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk is working to close a $44 billion deal to acquire Twitter.

Agrawal also said in the email that Twitter would pause most hiring and would review all existing job offers to determine whether any “should be pulled back.”

Kayvon Beykpour, who leads Twitter’s consumer division, said in a tweet thread on Thursday that his departure was not his decision.

Bruce Falck, who leads revenue product at Twitter, will leave after five years at the company.
