Hadi and Ali Partovi, the well known twin tech entrepreneurs have finally decided to depart from MySpace, the struggling social networking site in a high profile exit. The duo sent an exclusive internal memo to the website’s site this Tuesday afternoon.

In the internal memo gained by the BoomTown, Hadi Partovi stated that it was quite difficult to stay calm about the news of their departure as requested by their executives. He also stated that the news might have been completely shocking for many but he thoroughly apologized for not having any other option to personally brief people about their advance. Hadi held the position of SVP of Technology at the famous News Corp. unit, while on the other hand Ali was the honorable SVP of Business development in the company. According to the memo passed to the executives, it is known that Hadi will be leaving the company completely while Ali will still have a role to play. Ali will play the role of a special advisor. This information came from Michael Jones, the Co-President of MySpace.

Over a long time, the fate of the twins has been a really interesting guessing game on MySpace due to their major role in the company. However, the MySpace managers have been trying to avoid the company’s talent drain that is especially related to such renowned innovators.

It was just last august when the Partovis brothers joined the company when in the midst of a turbulence the original CEO and also Co-founder of the company, Chris DeWolfe was replaced by Owen Van Natta, also COO Jones and the Chief Product Officer Jason Hirschhorn. The Partovis brothers were brought in as a part of new strategy of becoming an entertainment hub which was engineered by Van Natta. However, in January, Van Natta lead the company in yet another storm after clashing with Hirschhorn, Miller and Jones.
