Twitter Communications Head Natalie Kerris Departs After Six Months

SAN FRANCISCO — Natalie Kerris is out as VP of communications at Twitter after joining the struggling social network in February. 

Buzzfeed broke the news of Kerris' departure. A Twitter spokesperson provided us with the following statement: “During her time leading communications at Twitter, Natalie helped us share the Twitter story with the world. We are grateful for her energy and enthusiasm and the impact she’s had, even in this short time. We wish her all the best.”

Kerris took the position that had been open since Gabriel Stricker departed last year during a 'strategy shift.' Twitter — which has struggled with harassment issues on its platform — came under fire recently when comedian Leslie Jones was beset with racist and sexist tweets.

Meanwhile, Mario Sundar joined Twitter in July as director of communications to "build Twitter's evangelism efforts." Sundar is best-known for his stint a senior communications manager at LinkedIn from 2007 to 2012. 

Twitter continues to struggle with revenue and missed Q2 revenue estimates — and lowered its revenue projections moving forward.


A previous version of this story incorrectly referred to Natalie Kerris as Nancy Kerris.
