Since there is no shortage of news this week, here is some ✨ personal news ✨ of my own. After 6 incredible years at Twitter, today is my last day at the nest. This was a bittersweet decision since Twitter is on the cusp of much greatness. #LoveWhereYouWorked#LoveTwitter
She tweeted with a heavy heart that after six incredible years at TWTR, today will be my last day in the company.
The core of Twitter is the Tweeps. I will dearly miss everyone so much. Not being able to say goodbye to my amazing colleagues in person when I moved from NYC to ATL 6 months ago & today *actually* hurts A LOT. #OneTeam 😭
She was emotional while writing, “I will miss everyone so much.”
To all of the newsrooms & journalists that I’ve worked with here in the US & globally, you are the *very essence* of Twitter. Thank you for your partnership and friendship. I will forever continue to advocate for your voices, safety & #pressfreedom

Niketa!!! I will miss you, your diligence, compassion, and kindness so much. I loved working with you and I hope our paths cross again soon. Thank you for your impact here and for all that I've learned from you! 💙
Niketa! Bittersweet to see you leaving, but I know you’ll crush it in your next gig. I’ll always remember how welcoming you were to me as a new hire in the NYC office. Meant a lot. Wishing you all the best!
