Jack Dorsey Expected to Be Named Permanent Twitter CEO ➝

Kara Swisher and Kurt Wagner, reporting for Re/code:

Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, who has been serving as interim CEO for the past three months, is expected to be named the company’s new permanent CEO as early as tomorrow, although that timeframe may change, according to sources. Dorsey will apparently continue to run Square, the payments company he founded where he’s also CEO.

If this pans out, I think it’ll be a huge step in the right direction.
