This morning Twitter announced it's swapping out two board members for new faces. In the filing, it revealed that Peter Currie and Peter Chernin will step down after the annual meeting, to be replaced by Pepsi exec Hugh Johnston and UK entrepreneur Martha Lane Fox. Most notable about these additions is that in Fox, the board will have a director who is a prolific tweeter with over seventeen thousand posts on her account, while Hugh has... 2 (both posted today).

Facing calls for increased diversity among the company's ranks and its leadership, CEO Jack Dorsey promised more additions soon that will "represent the strong communities on Twitter," echoing the sentiments of chairman Omid Kordestani. While we don't know what that will look like yet, hopefully adding an active user can increase focus on more features the service's current users will appreciate.
