Feb 28 (Reuters) - Hedge fund Elliott Management Corp’s founder, Paul Singer, is seeking to remove Twitter Inc Chief Executive Jack Dorsey, CNBC reported on Friday citing a person familiar with the matter.
Elliott is pushing for Dorsey's removal in part because his attention is split between running both Twitter and payments processor Square Inc, and his desire to move to Africa, the report said here.
Twitter declined to comment.
