Twitter hires Marjorie Scardino as first female director

Posted Dec 6, 2013

Twitter has hired Marjorie Scardino as their first female director. Scardino is the former Pearson PLC CEO. This past year, Twitter has been highly criticized for not having a female as board director. “@twitter Thank you. There couldn’t be a more exciting time in Twitter’s history to join!” wrote Scardino in a tweet. Scardino was also the CEO of The Economist Group. She will be replacing David Rosenblatt on the board’s audit committee.
