Twitter Names ex-Facebook Exec Bret Taylor to Board

Twitter has named Bret Taylor, former chief technology officer at Facebook and currently CEO of productivity software maker Quip, to its board. Taylor’s appointment further reshapes the Twitter board following the departure in May of Peter Chernin and tech investor Peter Currie, who were replaced by PepsiCo CFO Hugh Johnston and Internet entrepreneur Martha Lane Fox, and after Twitter named BET Chairman and CEO Debra Lee to its board in May. The company had been criticized for a lack of diversity on its board, and Twitter executive chairman and former Google exec Omid Kordestani has pledged the board would take steps to rectify the situation.
