Twitter Communications Head Sean Garrett Leaving the Company

Twenty months after joining Twitter as the company’s VP of Communications, industry veteran Sean Garrett just announced (on Twitter) that he’s leaving the company.

What’s next? “No plans yet,” he Tweeted. “Free agency. After creating and fulfilling a killer sabbatical list (suggestions welcomed).” Garrett has worked in PR for over twenty years, first for California Governor Pete Wilson.

Garrett has lead an active and effective communications team in his time at Twitter; the company has faced challenges ranging from spurned developers to interface changes to huge venture capital infusions. It was probably exhausting work to run communications there.

Twitter hired Google Senior Media Liaison Karen Wickre into its ranks two weeks ago. You can follow the whole Twitter communications team via this list.

Most RWW readers may feel like @sg isn’t a regular part of their Twitter experience, but for the wide array of press and bloggers watching one of the world’s most exciting social networks closely, he’s been a very important figure.
