Twitter’s Chief Technology Officer Adam Messinger said in a tweet that he would be leaving the company, the latest in a string of high-profile executive departures since founder Jack Dorsey returned as a permanent CEO.
After 5 years I’ve decided to leave Twitter and take some time off. Grateful to @jack for the opportunity and to my team for shipping.

The social media company has been struggling to attract more users to its 140-character message service while trying to figure out how to improve revenue growth.
Messinger has been working with Twitter for five years and became the CTO in March 2013.
Messinger said in a statement that he felt Twitter’s new leadership structure provides the right plan for success.
