Schiller joined Twitter as the social media platform started to move more aggressively into journalism at the end of last year, building new alerts for breaking news, and attempting to nurture relationships with the media industry. She announced she was stepping down as Twitter consolidates its global media division under new boss Katie Jacobs Stanton.
In her three-tweet resignation, Schiller called her time at Twitter "a fascinating experience."
1/3 Stepping down from Twitter so new global media lead @katies can reorganize as she sees fit. Wish everyone at twitter nothing but best.She came to Twitter from NBC, but her resume also includes stints at NPR and The New York Times. In her post, she explained why she was making the leap from "digital person in a media company" to "the media person in a tech company," saying that she had faith that Twitter can change the world for the better.
