Twitter Engineering Chief Departs Amidst Glitches During Ron DeSantis' Campaign Launch

(MENAFN) Following technical glitches during the launch of Ron DeSantis' US presidential campaign on Twitter, an engineering chief has announced his departure from the company. Foad Dabiri, in a tweet, revealed that he had chosen to "leave the nest yesterday" after nearly four remarkable years at Twitter. During Mr. DeSantis' campaign launch, the platform experienced issues, notably a malfunctioning Twitter livestream.

It is noteworthy that over 80% of Twitter's workforce has been downsized since its acquisition by Elon Musk. While Mr. Dabiri did not explicitly state the reason for his departure or its connection to the problems encountered during the DeSantis event, he refrained from providing further details in his tweet. The BBC reached out to Mr. Dabiri for comment, but he did not respond immediately. Twitter, when approached by the BBC, did not issue a statement regarding Mr. Dabiri's exit from the company.

In his tweet, Mr. Dabiri, who served as the engineering lead for Twitter's Growth organization, expressed that he had witnessed two distinct eras at the company—before and after its acquisition by the multi-billionaire entrepreneur last year. The departure of a key engineering figure amidst technical challenges raises questions about the impact on Twitter's ongoing efforts to address such issues and maintain a stable platform for users.
