Vivian Schiller Resigns At Twitter

Vivian Schiller
Twitter's head of news, Vivian Schiller, has quit her job at the company less than a year after she took the role, The Verge reports.

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."

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.
