He was involved in the launch of Hulu, the TV-streaming site, and sits on the board for Pandora, the popular music-streamer.

Citing sources, All Things D relays that Chernin has made no decisions on whether to join the board at Twitter; the social media company, based in San Francisco, is in the early stages of recruiting members.

Mike McCue, founder of the social media app Flipboard, vacated his seat on Twitter's board earlier this year.
