Twitter Loses Talent

Twitter

There’s more top talent leaving Twitter, Recode reported today. Sara Haider, technical lead at Twitter, is leaving the company to join Secret, where she’ll be responsible for leading its Android launch. Anonymous social networking platforms have gotten a lot of attention lately, and Secret has become known as a repository of Silicon Valley gossip.

Cayley Torgeson, Twitter’s VP of analytics and business intelligence, will also be leaving. According to Recode’s sources:

[Torgeson's] departure is indeed a big deal. He’s the person in charge of all of Twitter’s internal analytics, having built all of the tools the company uses to measure product performance.
 
In a nutshell, he’s the guy who can tell top brass if Twitter is “working” or not. Sources said he was a well-respected figure inside the company.

Sources said there are likely more departures to come.
