Ugh, this has to be the worst way to get canned. I'd rather just get fired and leave the company than have to stick around and train my own replacement while everyone stared at me knowing I "stepped down."

The move is a blow for struggling Twitter, which has hired bankers to field acquisition offers but has seen a dearth of potential bidders. The company said last month it would cut 9 percent of its global workforce to keep costs down. "Mr. Bain will remain at Twitter in the coming weeks to assist with the transition of the chief operating officer role," the company said.
