Twitter has hired a new VP of Design in Mike Davidson.
Pretty standard stuff, right? Well, there is an interesting thread to this because Davidson announced his move to Twitter on Twitter in what I suspect he figured was a cool way (it was tweet number 10,000 for him which is either cool or too much information depending on your point of view, I suppose). Nice touch, huh?
Trouble is he used the third party Twitter app Echofon to do it which is not exactly the direction Twitter is heading these days.
Minor point? Over reaction? Sure, you can say that but what it did was open a door for discussion that didn’t need to be opened. Instead of having a great move by Twitter you get a post like this one or this kind of sentiment from Mashable
