Colin Kroll, one of Vine’s founding employees and current leader of the Twitter-owned video sharing startup, plans to leave his position as general manager and assume an advisory position, according to a tweet he posted on Friday.
Twitter declined further comment on the departure, but mentioned the product and engineering teams at Vine will now report to Twitter’s product and engineering organizations, respectively. Just a few months ago, co-founder Dom Hoffmann also left his lead role at Vine and moved into an advisory position.
I'm so proud of Vine – the team + the product. I'll no longer be working there day-to-day as of today but will remain involved as an advisor
