Twitter on Thursday announced the abrupt departure of two senior executives, including the chief operating officer who had been responsible for the social media company’s efforts to revive flagging user growth.

Ali Rowghani, once seen as an influential No. 2 who oversaw Twitter’s product development, finances and dealmaking, departed after clashing with chief executive officer Dick Costolo over whether he should continue to oversee product innovation, a person familiar with the matter said.

Although Rowghani had been praised for orchestrating a series of financing deals for Twitter that culminated in a successful initial public offering in 2013, his ouster, which had the backing of Twitter’s board of directors, underscores the tensions and rising pressure at Twitter to tweak its microblogging offering to attract new users.
