Twitter CFO in direct message gaffe.
Twitter's chief financial officer has accidentally sent a public tweet that was meant to be a private direct message to a colleague.
Anthony Noto, who joined the company in July this year,
deleted the tweet soon after he had sent it.
It read: "I think we should buy them. He is on your schedule
for Dec 15 or 16 -- we will need to sell him. i have a plan."
The message has sparked speculation about which firm Noto
was referring to with technology news site Recode and CNBC suggesting Shots, a
selfie app backed by Justin Bieber. According to CNBC, the microblogging
website is particularly interested in the app's more than 3 million users,
nearly two-thirds of whom are women under the age of 24.
The BBC reported that Noto has also recently followed
several employees at Mic, a news website aimed at young people.
