Brendan Klinkenberg at Buzzfeed reports:
"BuzzFeed News has learned that Vine co-founder Rus Yusupov was among those laid off by Twitter earlier this week. A company spokesperson confirmed his departure...
...Yusupov, along with Dom Hofmann and Colin Kroll, founded the six-second looping video platform, before it was acquired by Twitter in 2012. Since then, both Hoffmannand Kroll have stepped down. Yusupov lasted the longest of the service’s three original founders."
Somehow I believe Rus isn't too torn up over being let go. After all, I'm willing to bet he is in the overwhelming minority of the 336+ employees who received a solid piece of $970 million as an exit package.
