Twitter Inc Chief Executive Officer Jack Dorsey will step down from his role, a person familiar with the matter told Reuters.
Dorsey and Twitter's board have settled on his successor, the source said, without identifying the person by name.
The company's board has been preparing for Dorsey's departure since last year, the source added. The news comes as Twitter has accelerated the pace of its product innovation over the past year to compete with social media rivals such as Facebook Inc and TikTok, and to reach its goal of doubling annual revenue by 2023.
