Twitter CEO: 'I’m not worried about my job'

Twitter's chief executive Dick Costolo has responded to speculation over his job security, saying he isn't afraid of losing his position.

The micro-blogging site reported surprisingly low quarterly earnings earlier this week, which set tongues wagging as to whether his role would remain secure.

“I don’t worry about that at all,” he told re/Code. “The board and I are completely in sync. Believe me, I don’t worry about that at all.”

After the earnings call, Costolo sat down with board member, Jack Dorsey. The two discussed the day’s events.

“We just talked about the day and what happened with the leak, and I told Jack here’s what happened,” Costolo added. “The team gets it, they know what they need to do on [revenue]. The product team knows what they have to do on the product and what we’ve got coming down the pike.”

Looking forward, Costolo expects outside criticism, though vows to remain mentally strong.
