But we know Williams currently serves as the CEO of blogging platform ”Medium”, a blog site that generate income via membership subscription. The website has continue to expand since inception that it has attracted big name users, like Jeff Bezos, who accused the National Enquirer of blackmail and extortion in a post published on the platform.

”Ev Williams was a major contributor to the growth of the company, especially when he succeeded his fellow co-founder Jack Dorsey’s as CEO from 2008 to 2010. According to The Information, Ev Williams helped oust Dorsey whom Recode says was a “bad manager” as at that time. Dick Costolo replaced him in 2010 until Dorsey took over as CEO yet again in 2015. The executive eventually left Twitter in 2011, but retained his seat in the board of directors until now. In 2017, he sold 30 percent of his shares in the company.” said publication.
