At Twitter, Jack Is Back!

Filed as News on March 28, 2011 5:33 pm

The man who founded Twitter (or at the very least helped give the social network its name) has decided to take a more active role in the social network despite being CEO of another popular start up.

Today I’m thrilled to get back to work at @Twitter leading product as Executive Chairman. And yes: leading @Square forevermore as CEO. #200% (via @Jack)

Jack Dorsey was Twitter’s first CEO before being forced to trade places with co-founder Evan Williams (who was Chairman of the Board at the time).

After the tweet swap, Dorsey launched Square, which has become a hit among small business owners (to the dismay of Dorsey’s numerous rivals).

Dorsey’s return (or rather active participation) should help Twitter gain some much needed momentum, especially with their rival Facebook attempting insert itself as the center of the Internet.

Although Twitter has a long ways to go before they can attain their goal of becoming the “pulse of the planet,” Jack’s active participation may help the company achieve that dream in the semi-distant future.
