Twitter Names Dame Scardino To Its Board
Twitter has hired the former Pearson chief executive Dame Marjorie Scardino to be the first woman on its board, after critics rounded on its all-male lineup. In response to the company's announcement, the former boss of the Financial Times publisher acknowledged the news in what appeared to be her first tweet: “@twitter Thank you. There couldn't be a more exciting time in Twitter's history to join!” she wrote. Twitter said Scardino would join the company immediately and would be a member of its audit committee.
