Twitter CEO and co-founder Jack Dorsey is stepping down as the social media firm’s chief executive, and Twitter CTO Parag Agrawal will succeed him as the firm’s new CEO, effective immediately, according to the company.

“I’ve decided to leave Twitter because I believe the company is ready to move on from its founders. My trust in Parag as Twitter’s CEO is deep. His work over the past 10 years has been transformational. I’m deeply grateful for his skill, heart, and soul. It’s his time to lead,” said Dorsey in a statement, who helped found the firm in 2006, that was released by the firm on Monday.Earn up to $11 for every friend who reads this article.

The San Francisco-based company’s Board of Directors unanimously approved Agrawal, who has been with the firm for more than a decade, to become the company’s new CEO, according to a Twitter news release.

Dorsey, who is also the CEO of payments firm Square, will remain a member of Twitter’s Board of Directors until next year when his term expires, the firm said.

“I love twitter,” Dorsey wrote on the social media platform late on Sunday ahead of the announcement.  He also posted an email that he sent to Twitter’s employees about the departure.

“This was my decision and I own it,” Dorsey wrote, adding that “it was a tough one for me.”

Another executive, Bret Taylor, was named Twitter’s new chairman of the board, while the previous chairman, Patrick Pichette, will stay on the board and will chair the Twitter Audit Committee, a news release said.

Bret Taylor was named the new Chairman of the Board, succeeding Patrick Pichette who will remain on the Board and continue to serve as chair of the Audit Committee. Agrawal has been with Twitter for more than a decade and has served as Chief Technology Officer since 2017.

Dorsey, 45, faced being ousted in 2020 when Twitter stakeholder Elliott Management attempted to replace him as Elliott founder Paul Singer had wondered whether Dorsey should run both Square and Twitter.

After helping found Twitter in 2006 with Noah Glass, Biz Stone, and Evan Williams, Dorsey was CEO of the firm until 2008 when he was pushed out of the role. He returned to become the company’s CEO in 2015 after former CEO Dick Costolo stepped down.

But Dorsey also faced significant criticism from conservatives and free speech proponents for the platform’s decision to ban former President Donald Trump in January 2021. At the time, Dorsey acknowledged that “this moment in time might call for this dynamic, but over the long term it will be destructive to the noble purpose and ideals of the open internet.”

And for years, Dorsey has appeared alongside Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Google executives during televised congressional hearings in which elected officials asked about whether his platform was responsible for the spread of so-called “disinformation” or whether it actively is silencing viewpoints that are contrary to the mainstream.

On Monday, Twitter’s stock rose by more than 4 percentage points following reports of Dorsey stepping down.
