Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey has denied claims that his role at the microblogging firm was cut back after employees at the company complained that he was ‘difficult to work with’.

Dorsey addressed the claims, which appeared in a New York Times profile of Twitter”s chief executive Dick Costolo, on his Tumblr blog.

He said that he reduced his role at Twitter service months ago as he devoted the majority of his time to Square, the payment start-up where he is chief executive.

He remains executive chairman at Twitter, however, albeit with a lesser role.

According to the Telegraph, Dorsey said he transferred all of his employee supervision to Costolo in January as part of a pre-arranged transition process.

“We moved all of my reports back under him in January of this year after leadership was firmly in place,” the paper quoted him, as saying.

The New York Times had claimed that ‘employees complained that he was difficult to work with and repeatedly changed his mind about product directions’.
