Twitter Gets New VP Operations From eBay

Mazen Rawashdeh, VP of technology operations for eBay Marketplaces, has joined Twitter to lead its operations team, according to a tweet by Twitter VP Engineering Michael Abbott.

Twitter recently completed two data center migrations, with Abbott saying yesterday that the company could now look beyond its stability problems.

The company had let go of its previous Manager of Operations, Nick Heyman, in December. Heyman was a veteran of Facebook, Playdom and Zazzle.

Rawashdeh’s Twitter account is currently private.
