Reports surfaced early Thursday indicating that a handful of prominent players at Twitter have been shuffled around and elevated to loftier new executive-level positions.
For starters, Ali Rowghani is the new chief operating officer of Twitter, ascending to the pivotal role once held by Twitter CEO Dick Costolo.
Rowghani hired in at Twitter in 2010 as chief financial officer. It was a position he formerly held at Disney’s Pixar animation studios.
“Congratulations to @rowghani on his new role as COO,” Twitter chief Costolo tweeted Thursday, adding another congratulatory wish to @mgupta “on his new role as CFO.”
It goes without saying that past Zynga treasurer Mike Gupta will assume Rowghani’s former duties as CFO.
Before working at Zynga, Gupta was a prominent executive at Yahoo.
As of this writing, Twitter hasn’t offered any other details about the promotions.
