Twitter recruits Kelly Sims, a veteran of IBM and Abernathy MacGregor, as VP of global communications.

Sims was previously global head of communications at tech company Stripe, where she oversaw all public affairs, internal and external communications, brand work, social media and media relations.

Before coming to Stripe, she was senior VP at AbMac and was part of the team that launched IBM’s Watson as well as leading global communications for such IBM initiatives as cloud computing and Web 2.0.

Brandon Borrman exited the VP global communications post in June.

Twitter reported a 74 percent jump in Q2 revenues to $1.1B. It earned $66M during the period compared to a $1.4B year-earlier loss. Twitter has $8.5B in cash/equivalents and short-term investments.

CEO Jack Dorsey said Twitter chalked up 206M in "monetizable daily active usage," up 11 percent from 2020.
