Bruce Falck, Twitter’s revenue product lead, and Kayvon Beykpour, Twitter’s general manager, were both let go ahead of Elon Musk’s possible acquisition of the social media company.

Beykpour joined the company in 2015 after Twitter had acquired his company, Periscope. On Thursday, Beykpour took to Twitter to announce the news, revealing that current Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal had made the decision after deciding to “take the team in a different direction.”

The truth is that this isn’t how and when I imagined leaving Twitter, and this wasn’t my decision. Parag asked me to leave after letting me know that he wants to take the team in a different direction.

Interrupting my paternity leave to share some final @twitter-related news: I’m leaving the company after over 7 years,” he tweeted on Thursday. “The truth is that this isn’t how and when I imagined leaving Twitter, and this wasn’t my decision. Parag asked me to leave after letting me know that he wants to take the team in a different direction.”

I hope and expect that Twitter’s best days are still ahead of it. Twitter is one of the most important, unique and impactful products in the world. With the right nurturing and stewardship, that impact will only grow.

Everything this team has done and will do sits on the shoulders of the giants that did this work – those dedicated IC engineers who seldom see the spotlight or get the recognition they deserve. The unsung heroes that make Goldbird (and Twitter) what it is
