This morning Ilya Sukhar, the CEO and cofounder of Parse, announced on Twitter (of all places) that he’s leaving Facebook.

In a series of tweets, Sukhar said: “it’s time to do something new,” “For now, I’m going to eat burritos and write questionable code on my couch,” and “…you’ve seen this week how big Messenger is thinking. Excited for what I worked on to launch!” Sukhar announced his move from Parse to Facebook’s Messenger team in May.

This follows Branch founder Josh Miller‘s departure yesterday and Facebook’s recent milestone: 1 billion people used the site in a single day.

Facebook acquired Parse more than two years ago for a rumored $85 million.
