Twitter has a new boss – level 2

Jack Dorsey is an American internet entrepreneur and philanthropist. He was born in 1976, and he helped start the social media platform Twitter.

In 2006, Dorsey and three other people created Twitter, and he became the company’s boss two years later.

Last week, he said that he was stepping down, but he would work for Twitter until 2022. Dorsey said that it was time to stop, and he also said that the new CEO would be Parag Agrawal.

Since 2011, Agrawal worked at Twitter as the Chief Technology Officer. Dorsey said that Agrawal would be a good boss.

Difficult words: entrepreneur (a person who starts his own business), philanthropist (a person who gives money to poor or sick people), step down (to end a job in an important position or office).
