Comeback Kids

Jack Dorsey is back at the helm of twitter and shareholders are hoping he's the next comeback kid of Silicon Valley.

After co-founding Twitter and serving as its CEO for two years Dorsey returned to the top spot last week. So far his first moves have been to slash jobs and roll out new features in an effort to entice users.

This isn't the first time the head honcho has left and returned in an effort to save a company. One of the most well-known examples is Steve Jobs. Jobs was forced out of Apple nine years after starting it. He was brought back in when Apple was on the brink of bankruptcy; now it's one of the biggest companies in the world thanks to Jobs and his new products including the iPod, iPhone and iPad.

Unfortunately not every returning CEO can have the same type of success. Following the return of co-founder Jerry Yang, Yahoo still struggled to turn a profit. To see some other hit or miss stories click the link below. I guess history doesn't always repeat itself.
