It’s now been a little over a month since the platform’s CEO, Dick Costolo, resigned from the job amid falling stocks and agitated shareholders.

Twitter issued a statement on Stricker’s departure, highlighting a need to “show the world” the value of the company.

“Communications is a key component of that, and to help build toward a stronger future, we are looking now to shift our communications strategy and direction,” the statement reads.

The company is now on the hunt for new leadership, and thanked Stricker “for his contributions.”

Twitter co-founder and, now, interim CEO since Costolo’s departure Jack Dorsey issued the following Tweet:

Stricker, who came to Twitter from Google in 2012, responded with his own message.
