Biz Stone really is out of the Loop at Twitter

Twitter CEO Dick Costolo laughs off crazy calls for his resignation


One of Twitter's founders has labelled calls for CEO Dick Costolo to be fired as "crazy" and said the criticism he faces is like "water off a duck's back".

Biz Stone, who is currently promoting his new app Super, told IBTimes UK that at standing monthly meetings with Costolo they joke about the criticism which he and Twitter as a whole face from people if they miss quarterly revenue and growth targets.

Speaking about the people who recently questioned Twitter's revenue-generating potential, Stone said: "I don't actually know anything about those things and I tend to think in the longer term. You are talking about people who think quarterly and if [results are] a percent off that quarter, it's like: "Fire the CEO," and that's crazy."
