Twitter’s head of design, Mike Davidson, has announced that he will be leaving the company in February.
In his three years at Twitter, Davidson has been in charge of testing the user experience of all services and products.
His team was also responsible for launching Moments, a new feature where users can access curated content organised by topic.
Davidson announced his departure on Twitter:
Personal news: After 3+ years leading Design @Twitter, I’m leaving in Feb to take the 1st break from work in my life. Thank you & GO TEAM ✌️

Although it is unclear why Davidson is leaving, his departure does continue a trend of recent exits from the company. In the last two weeks, Glenn Otis Brown, who lead Twitter’s video ad program, and Utkarsh Srivastava, who oversaw Twitter’s engineering team, have both left.
Looking ahead, Twitter has been testing out a new format for arranging timelines and it has also been suggested that Twitter will abandon its 140-character limit.
Twitter is yet to release a statement about Davidson’s departure or who might replace him.
