Twitter's chief engineer, Foad Dabiri, has announced he is leaving the social platform.

"After almost four incredible years on Twitter, I decided to leave the nest yesterday," Dabiri wrote on Twitter.

It did not specify the reasons for the decision, but it comes a day after Republican Ron DeSantis announced he was running for president of the United States. This happened in a conversation with the owner of Twitter, Elon Musk. However, the event was delayed by about 20 minutes due to technical problems, BNT writes.

By then, thousands of users had left the platform, the BBC said. Foad Dabiri was in charge of the growth sector and wrote on his account that while he was part of the company he experienced "two different eras" - before and after Twitter was bought by Elon Musk.

After the start of his management, 80% of the company's workers were laid off.
