Jack Dorsey is trying to squash rumors that he will be reinstated as Twitter CEO once Elon Musk takes over. On Wednesday, he tweeted “nah, I’ll never be CEO again” in response to someone who predicted he would run the company he co-founded before. He is going to say who doesn’t want the paper.
In Other answerDorsey says “ultimately no one” should be CEO of Twitter, perhaps referring to Bluesky, a project aimed at turn Twitter into a decentralized protocolinstead of a traditional social network.
Dorsey has a contentious history with the leadership role on Twitter. the company directory fired him from his position as CEO in 2008, just two years after he helped start the company (although he remained on the board). He returned to the CEO role in 2015 after Twitter went through two other CEOs, but in 2020, a group of investors on Twitter’s board began trying to replace it. They cited their divided attention and lack of innovation, but Dorsey he managed to hang on to his job. But in November 2021, resigned for reasons that are not completely clear.
After Dorsey’s departure, Parag Agrawal took over as CEO of Twitter. At this point, though, it looks like he won’t be around for long. Elon Musk is willing to buy the company and take it private (a saga that began with him just looking to become a board memberso back out of the deal), and it is rumored that he serve as temporary executive director if the deal really closes. But Musk is a busy person: He has to run SpaceX and Tesla, so it seems likely that he wants to find someone else to take over.
It made sense that people would think that Jack might be Elon’s choice. Dorsey has recently been speaking Some clout On twitter about Twitter, which makes it sound like he’s not particularly happy with the direction the company is taking (although it’s peppered with enough positive tweets to keep us guessing). He also seems to agree with Musk on at least some points about the future of Twitter.
