Trevor O’Brien, who joined Twitter a year and a half ago from YouTube and oversees product for Twitter’s iOS and Android apps, is departing the company, according to multiple sources.
Based on the application updates I’ve seen these last few months I’d say O’Brien wasn’t overseeing much of anything. The state of applications at Twitter — from my outside view in my very comfy chair — is rather crap.
So far this is being painted as “a blow” to the team. And perhaps it is. But I say new blood could be good.
