Flipboard co-founder and CEO Mike McCue tweeted a bombshell bit of news Wednesday: That he was no longer part of Twitter's board of directors.
As McCue tweeted, thanking Twitter's founders for the opportunity:
Flipboard confirmed to TPM that McCue had left the board, but said that Twitter would still work with the app. As Flipboard head of marketing Marci McCue (Mike's wife) said in a statement: "We are still big fans of what Twitter does and we continue to support Twitter across Flipboard."
The news comes following a week of rumors that Twitter would cut-off access to Flipboard, disabling the ability for Flipboard users to link the popular news reading app to their Twitter accounts, as Twitter recently did for another app, Instagram.
