Whether Twitter is at some point going to launch (or buy) a desktop client is subject to speculation, but it’s clear that their web and mobile clients garner a lot of the startup’s attention right now. A new hire reflects that.
Overseeing Twitter’s products, and primarily its web service, will henceforth be the task of Kevin Cheng, formerly Director of Product Strategy at Raptr, a social network for gamers. Cheng previously worked at Yahoo!’s Brickhouse incubator where he designed Yahoo Pipes and Bravonation, and at Yahoo! Maps, Yahoo! Local, Adaptive Path, and Trilogy.
