Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey tweets for 'last time' before news of him stepping down breaks

TWITTER CEO Jack Dorsey will be leaving his role at the tech giant after facing calls to step down last year.

His ominous final tweet yesterday was made before the news of his upcoming departure broke.

Dorsey tweeted on November 28: "I love Twitter".

The tweet currently has over 56,000 likes.

Many fans were quick to respond in the comments.

One wrote: "Thank you Jack and everyone who made this a great platform!!"

Another responded: "I love jack".

A source is said to have told Reuters that the company has been preparing for Dorsey's departure for a year.

The Sun has reached out to Twitter for a comment.

Dorsey has since tweeted to confirm that he resigned and CTO Parag Agrawal will take on his role.

He tweeted a screenshot of an email that he had sent to his team, which confirmed he has decided it was finally time to leave and that Parag will take his place starting from Monday.

Dorsey wrote: "I want you all to know that this was my decision and I own it."

Early last year, Dorsey was facing calls from hedge fund Elliott Management Corp to leave his role.

The hedge fund argued that Dorsey wasn't paying enough attention to Twitter and was focusing more on his other Square Inc digital payment company.
