I'm leaving at a time when people are using WhatsApp in more ways than i could have imagined. The Team is stronger thean ever and it will continue to do amazing things. I'm taking some time off to do things i enjoy outside of technology, such as collecting rare air-cooled porsches,working on my cars and playing ultimate firsbee. And i will still be cheering WhatsApp on - just from the outside.Thanks to everyone who has made this journey possible,"
