Voice&Data - - PEOPLE -

Con­tin­u­ing the trend of top-level ex­its from Twit­ter In­dia, Ravi Bhaskaran, Head of busi­ness de­vel­op­ment/plat­form part­ner­ships, South Asia, has called it quits at Twit­ter to join Uber In­dia as head of part­ner­ships.

Be­fore Twit­ter, Bhaskaran worked in the tele­com sec­tor with a three-year ex­pe­ri­ence with Air­cel and around two-and-a-half- years at Reliance Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, where he was the prod­uct head of App Stores & So­cial Me­dia, 3G & New Age VAS.

Last month, Par­min­der Singh, Twit­ter’s man­ag­ing di­rec­tor for South­east Asia, MENA and In­dia, quit the com­pany af­ter a three- year stint, days af­ter Twit­ter In­dia head Rishi Jaitly quit and even­tu­ally joined Times Global Part­ners as CEO.

Nandu Mad­hava, di­rec­tor of growth in In­dia, quit the com­pany in Novem­ber 2016, soon af­ter Twit­ter said it would cut 9 per­cent of its global work­force or about 350 em­ploy­ees, in or­der to cut down its costs.

The mi­cro-blog­ging site reel­ing un­der a stag­nant user growth is ap­par­ently ex­pe­ri­enc­ing sim­i­lar ex­its glob­ally. Jeff Seib­ert, head of prod­uct, quit Twit­ter in June 2016 af­ter be­ing in the role only for five months. Ear­lier, in De­cem­ber 2016, the mi­cro-blog­ging ser­vice ap­pointed Keith Cole­man, founder of startup Yes, as head of its prod­uct team, the third ex­ec­u­tive to lead the di­vi­sion in less than a year, ac­cord­ing to re­ports.
