China Twitter’s boss Kathy Chen quits after 7 months in post

Kathy Chen said it was ‘the right time’ for her to leave Twitter

The head of Twitter’s China operations has left the firm after seven months in charge, the BBC wrote.

Kathy Chen announced she was leaving following a restructure of the business in Asia, it added.

While Twitter is blocked in China, it lets Chinese advertisers reach a global audience. It is also very popular with Chinese dissidents based in the West, according to the BBC.

Ms Chen is the latest in a string of high-profile Twitter executives to depart from the firm.

Chief technology officer Adam Messinger and chief operating officer Adam Bain have both left recently, added the BBC.
