Twitter CMO Leslie Berland is the last executive to leave the social network, just days into the Elon Musk era, Bloomberg and the New York Times report. Citing unnamed sources, Bloomberg also writes that Jean-Philippe Maheu, the vice president of global customer solutions, is leaving the company.
Berland hasn’t said anything publicly about the track change yet, except a simple blue heart tweet emoji.
Despite the tweet’s brevity, the signal appears to have been enough to spark a deluge of responses, including other Twitter employees sending back blue-hearted emojis. A VP of product quote tweeted Berland’s tweet, adding that “It’s no exaggeration to say that no one had a greater impact on Twitter the service – and Twitter the company. She always stood behind you, she always listened, she always did right, and she made Twitter ‘what happens.'”
Berland’s LinkedIn and Twitter bios have not been updated to reflect any job changes. londonbusinessblog.com contacted Berland ahead of publication for comment, but didn’t hear back immediately.
Berland’s reported departure comes more than a decade after they first joined the company – continuing a series of departures announced today, including Chief Consumer Officer Sarah Personette and Chief People and Diversity Officer Dalana Brand.
As my colleague Amanda Silberling pointed out, the cohort of Twitter’s pre-Musk executives still working at the company is shrinking. Jay Sullivan, Twitter’s head of product, deleted the bio on his Twitter account, which previously hinted at his role at the company. The previous head of product, Kayvon Beykpour, was fired in May by former CEO Parag Agrawal. Agrawal himself, along with CFO Ned Segal, General Counsel Sean Edgett and Chief of Legal Policy, Trust and Security Vijaya Gadde were fired on Thursday when Musk took over.
