Natalie Kerris, Former PR Director at Apple, Leaves Twitter After Just Six Months

Alex Kantrowitz, reporting for BuzzFeed:

Natalie Kerris, who joined Twitter as its VP of communications in February, is leaving the company, BuzzFeed News has learned. Leslie Berland, Twitter’s chief marketing officer, will lead both marketing and communications in a combined role.

BuzzFeed News confirmed the departure with a Twitter spokesperson. “During her time leading communications at Twitter, Natalie helped us share the Twitter story with the world. We are grateful for her energy and enthusiasm and the impact she’s had, even in this short time,” said the spokesperson. “We wish her all the best.”

Another sign of turmoil at Twitter. Kerris was a longtime PR director at Apple, who left Apple after Steve Dowling was named Katie Cotton’s successor.
