【美国】Facebook的Sandberg和Twitter的Dorsey都离开迪斯尼董事会

Facebook's Sandberg, Twitter's Dorsey to leave Disney board

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Facebook Inc Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg and Twitter Inc Chief Executive Jack Dorsey will not seek re-election to Walt Disney Co's board because of growing conflicts of interest between the media giant and the technology companies, Disney said on Friday.

Disney is moving heavily into online delivery of its TV shows and movies as viewers abandon traditional cable, and at one point had explored an acquisition of Twitter. At the same time, Twitter and Facebook are trying to attract audiences to video content on their platforms.

"Given our evolving business and the businesses Ms. Sandberg and Mr. Dorsey are in, it has become increasingly difficult for them to avoid conflicts relating to board matters, and they are not standing for re-election," Disney said in a statement.

迪士尼公司周五表示,由于媒体巨头与科技公司之间的利益冲突日益加剧,Facebook公司首席运营官Sheryl Sandberg和Twitter公司首席执行长Jack Dorsey将不会再次竞选沃尔特·迪斯尼公司董事会董事。

随着观众放弃传统的有线电视,迪斯尼正在大量投入电视节目和电影的在线发布业务,并曾一度探索收购Twitter的可能性。与此同时,Twitter和Facebook正试图吸引观众在他们的平台上收看视频节目。

迪斯尼在一份声明中表示:"鉴于我们不断发展的业务和Sandberg女士和Dorsey先生所处的业务有重复,他们也越来越难以避免与董事会有关的冲突,因此他们决定不再连任。
