Garg joined Twitter a little over a year back from digital payments company Square, where he was engaged in a similar role. Interestingly, Square was founded by Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, who is incidentally now serving as the interim CEO of Twitter, after CEO Dick Costolo stepped down. Garg had joined Square in 2012 and played a key role in the partnership the mobile payments company formed with T-Mobile
