Twitter's Video Head Baljeet Singh Reportedly Leaving Company

Baljeet Singh, Twitter’s product lead in charge of video, will quit the company early next month, a media report said quoting a Twitter spokesperson.

Singh, who works as a senior product director, joined Twitter two years ago after working with video sharing platform YouTube for more than five years, Re/code tech website reported on Wednesday.

Singh will be the latest product leader to leave Twitter after Glenn Brown, an ad executive who was handling Twitter’s video ad push and left the company in October.

Twitter has recently been jolted by the departure of several top executives over the past six months, highlighted by the departure of three key product executives in June.

Video has been an important tool in the social media realm. Facebook and Snapchat are building their businesses around video.

Many content creators go to YouTube and Facebook to share their work.

Twitter was earlier this week in the news for issuing an alert to some users warning them that state-sponsored hackers may have tried to obtain sensitive data from their accounts, the company said, the first such warning by the micro-blogging site.

The notice said there was no indication the hackers obtained sensitive information from what it said were a “small group of accounts” targeted. It did not provide additional information about the attack or possible suspects in its investigation. Twitter’s notice is the latest amid concern about cyber-attacks by state-sponsored organizations. Government agencies, businesses and media have all been hacked.
