Noto was credited for creating Twitter’s growth strategy in video and was the person who knew Twitter more intimately than anyone. This can only be seen as a bad sign for the endlessly struggling internet company, says one top internet analyst. Rumors had been swirling for days that Twitter’s COO, Anthony Noto, was talking with fintech startup Social Finance (aka SoFi) to become its next CEO. And on Tuesday, it happened. Two weeks before Twitter will report its fourth quarter and year-end financials, the news became official. Noto resigned from Twitter effective immediately. He will begin as SoFi’s CEO on March 1. It’s a move that makes sense for Noto in many ways. Noto is an ambitious former Goldman Sachs banker who was widely known to be dreaming of a CEO role. … [Read more...] about ‘I don’t see how anyone could interpret this as a good thing’: The departure of Twitter’s No. 2 exec is going to hurt
Twitter chief operating officer Anthony Noto has resigned to accept the role of chief executive officer at financial technology company Social Finance.Noto will assume the post at SoFi in March. His departure comes at a pivotal time for Twitter, which is finally showing results from its turnaround efforts. Since beating Wall Street’s estimates in late October, the company has been upgraded by at least six analysts, who have cited more user engagement and improvements in Twitter’s live video advertising.Noto’s take-action attitude has been an important balancing presence to CEO Jack Dorsey’s introverted leadership style, according to people familiar with the matter. Losing him may deal a blow to the company’s positive momentum.Twitter hired Noto, 49, as CFO in 2014 with a stock award worth more than $60 million, following a career in banking at Goldman Sachs Group Inc., where he helped Twitter go public. He served as the social-media company’s finance … [Read more...] about Twitter COO Anthony Noto resigns to become chief executive of SoFi
