"I'm going to be joining Twitter and become a part of #theflock to work with the fantastic product team there," Krishnan tweeted. A well-known product executive around Silicon Valley, Krishnan has primarily focused on ad technology.

"So so so so so so excited to have you Sriram! Welcome home," tweeted Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey late on Monday.

Starting October 2, he will be responsible for core features inside the main app, including timeline, direct messaging and search.

Krishnan will report to Keith Coleman, Twitter's Vice President of Product.

According to a Recode report, Krishnan left Facebook in February 2016 where he helped build the company’s ad network as well as audience network. At Snap, he helped build out the company’s ads API to help lead advertising efforts at Snapchat's parent company Snap. He quit Snap in February, just a month ahead of the company's IPO.

At Facebook, he led "Facebook Audience Network" to take on Google.
