It's a tight round of "Game of CEO's" at Twitter right now as the board circles in on a short list of who might have the right stuff for the job.

So far we've heard the board is looking for someone who can focus solely on Twitter (and not some other *cough Square) company, is a heavy tweeter, and gets the product. There's also significant interest to bring in a woman or minority to do the job.

Rumors continue to swirl, so we've put together a?list of plausible appointees, as well as some wild hearsay for good measure. So sit back and enjoy our picks as possible successors cuz winter is coming - we've heard as soon as the end of July.

Jack Dorsey

The current interim CEO may have stepped in during a time of need, or he may be campaigning for the title. We've heard this is a trial run for the once and current Twitter leader.

Pro: Jack has done this before. He knows the product and is a favorite of former CEO Dick Costolo .

Con: Aside from that wizard beard everyone is talking about; Jack is also the head of Square. We've also heard there's a healthy contingent of employees who'd be very against this comeback kid. Don't knock the two-company straddle, though. Product engineering lead Gokul Rajaram could get the nod from Dorsey to take over Square, should Dorsey want to assume the role at Twitter.

Padmasree Warrior

We've heard Warrior is on the shortlist for Twitter CEO. Cisco's CTO is stepping down and we've heard is on the hunt for a CEO position. She's also an avid tweeter. She?would be a neat pick for the now public social networking giant?and?also fits the bill for both gender and diversity.

Pro: She's available. She fits both ticks on the list for gender and diversity. She seems to get the product and uses it. She has operational experience. We've also heard she's aware of the list and is interested in the position, though Warrior wouldn't answer back when we reached out to ask.

Con: Warrior comes from the enterprise world and doesn't have the consumer experience. The board may see that as a crutch to the growth and direction of the company.

Bradley Horowitz

Rumor has it at least one Twitter board member has tipped his hat to the man?responsible for Google+ . Though Horowitz recently?stated that Google+ is still ticking, it's barely on life support at this point. Now would be?a good time for him?to jump off that sinking ship and into another social network.

Pro: He has experience working on another social network. Though Google+ isn't what Google execs hoped and dreamed it would be, one could argue this was more of a case of jumping in too late to the social field. Twitter is an already established network that grew up at the right time and Horowitz experience could make for a good fit.

Con: Twitter is still a fragile flower in need of growth beyond journalists and celebrities. Horowitz may not have the experience the board is looking for to expand the market. Also,?Horowitz mans Google's photos and streams, an increasingly important part of Google Search.

"We aspire to do for photo management what Gmail did for email management," Horowitz recently told Medium's BackChannel. He isn't likely to give up on that.

Adam Bain

Multiple sources?told?us the current director of revenue and partnerships at Twitter?was overheard *insinuating?at Cannes that he was in the running for the?job. Bain is well-liked among employees and we've heard the board may want an insider who understands the product to take over the company.

Pro: He's familiar with the product.

Con: We've heard Ev is not in favor of show-boaters and though Bain didn't come right out and say he had the job, confidently hinting?he had the job?may not go over well.

Jeff Weiner

This is a weird one. We only include it based on a tip we got, but it seems very unlikely this would ever happen. However, we're at least willing to entertain the possibility.

Pro: He has both the operational?experience of CEO and experience running a large social network. Weiner started out as the interim CEO with LinkedIn and ran the professional social network since that time. Plus, think of the jokes to be had with the change from Dick to Jack to Weiner.

Con: The idea seems preposterous. Weiner seems well-situated and happy with his current position, but you never know.

Mike McCue

Twitter board member Peter Currie is quite close to the Flipboard frontman, dating back to their days together at Netscape in the '90s.

Pro:?Mike McCue is one of Silicon Valley’s most beloved entrepreneurs. During the last boom, McCue cofounded the speech recognition company TellMe, which, helped by hundreds of millions of investor dollars, not only survived the dot.com crash but sold for $800 million in 2007 to Microsoft. Since cofounding Flipboard in 2010, McCue has again experienced ups and downs – good experience for an incoming Twitter CEO.

Con:?McCue has never run a public company. Shareholders who already think the company needs fresh blood (and a new board)?might not be thrilled, either. McCue was a himself a Twitter director for a couple of years.

Snoop Dogg

This is another one we'll entertain just for fun.?Snoop volunteered himself as tribute for the role of Twitter CEO mere moments after the twittersphere exploded with news that Costolo was stepping down.
