Jack Dorsey Returns To Twitter As Executive Chairman

Last week we speculated about the return of Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey to the network in a greater role, since he stepped down as CEO five months ago.

Today those rumours have been confirmed with Twitter CEO Dick Costolo and Dorsey himself announcing his position as Executive Chairman of Twitter.

Dorsey will continue as CEO of his other startup, Square – which according to a spokeswoman at Square remains Dorsey’s “top priority” – but Jack will now begin overseeing product at Twitter within this new role.

“As executive chairman, Jack will dive in to work with more than 450 people, led by an experienced executive team,” Twitter stated in an email. “Not only is Twitter experiencing record growth, but we also now have a new infrastructure that will keep us ahead of that growth and enable us to launch products that will make Twitter more instant, simple and always present.”

Who knows – maybe now they’ll finally give him a verified account. Then he’ll really know he’s made it.
