(Reuters) - Twitter Inc (TWTR.N) said on Thursday its product head, Ed Ho, would step down and named its live-streaming service Periscope’s former Chief Executive Officer Kayvon Beykpour as his replacement.

Ho, product head since December 2016, is stepping down for personal reasons and would stay on as an adviser, the social network said.

Earlier in the day, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey announced an organizational reshuffle.

“We’re reorganizing how Twitter is going to work together for the next decade,” Dorsey tweeted.

Twitter had acquired Periscope in early 2015.
