    Please do some research. Time to short Twitter. Todd has been fired from nearly every job he has held. The man keeps failing up. He did not run digital video at Bloomberg. He most certainly did not “launch” a business that was around for 10 years before he even joined the company!! He was just a content sales guy. Do people just make decisions based on what he puts on his LinkedIn profile? The article says he was an SVP at Bloomberg. NOBODY is and SVP or VP of anything at Bloomberg because the company does not have titles! Please report FACTS and not just publish PR.
