Instead of getting themselves someone who’s experience enogh to build scalable infrastructures, Twitter has been struggling to please the user with more and more new features. Hence why newly-hired Dick Costolo, the cofounder/CEO of RSS service Feedburner, is going to take over as the Chief Operating Office (COO) from Santosh Jayaram — the current head of operations.
Costolo — who has been an early Twitter investor — left Google back in July and there were reports that he was starting a new company, Twitter, however, managed to rope him just in time.
Although we know the answer to the “what’s going to happen with Feedburner now?” question (as many call it Google’s worst investment so far), what we’re more interested in is if Costelo’s experience is enough to actually help Twitter reach the next level.
What do you guys think?
