Twitter CEO Evan Williams steps down and moves into product development:
Guardian reports today on how Twitter is entering the second phase of the company’s growth potential as Evan moves to bring Dick Costolo in as CEO:
Growing big is no success, in itself. Success to us means meeting our potential as a profitable company that can retain its culture and user focus while having a positive impact on the world. This is no small task. I frequently reflect on the type of focus that is required from everyone at Twitter to get us there.”
Williams says he will personally focus on product strategy: “I am most satisfied while pushing product direction. Building things is my passion, and I’ve never been more excited or optimistic about what we have to build.”
Wonderful quote and very inspiring way to describe the passion for making things.
