- Twitter's VP of Product Development Michael Sippy has announced his exit from the social platform.
- Sippey announced his departure on his personal blog and included a Vine video that seems to represent him walking away.
- Sippey will be moving into an advisory role until a replacement is found.
It is all speculation, but the need to drive revenue following Twitter's IPO could have caused Sippy to feel stifled in his ability to move product development forward. He also states in his blog that he enjoys working with startups, so it's possible that Sippey feels Twitter has outgrown the kind of fast pace he delights in. Regardless, the split seems amicable.
