Jack Dorsey, a co-founder of Twitter and former CEO of the platform, approved the acquisition of the company by Elon Musk.
He published on his page a song by Radiohead “Everything in its right place” and continued the conversation with the messages “I love Twitter. Twitter is the closest thing we have to global consciousness.”
In the next tweet, he explained, “The idea and service are all that matters to me, and I will do whatever it takes to protect both. Twitter as a company has always been my sole issue and my biggest regret. It has been owned by Wall Street and the ad model. Taking it back from Wall Street is the correct first step”.
Dorsey does not believe that Twitter should be owned or managed by anyone. The platform should be a public good, not a company, however, because it’s still a company, Elon Musk is the only solution he trusts. “I trust his mission to extend the light of consciousness”, says Dorsey.
“Elon’s goal of creating a platform that is “maximally trusted and broadly inclusive” is the right one. This is also Parag’s goal (Parag Agrawal, CEO of Twitter, who replaced Jack Dorsey, – ed.), and why I chose him. Thank you both for getting the company out of an impossible situation. This is the right path…I believe it with all my heart,” wrote Jack Dorsey.
In a press release on the acquisition of Twitter by Elon Musk, it was noted that the decision to sell the company was unanimous. This may indicate that Parag Agrawal will remain in the team after Elon Musk takes office.
