Twitter founder Jack Dorsey is off of the board of the company, announces Elon Musk



Elon Musk who is in the process of buying Twitter wholly and taking it private has just announced that Jack Dorsey who is the original founder of the company. “Jack off the board (of Twitter),” Musk tweeted.

Earlier this month, Elon Musk halted the process of buying Twitter and asked the company to verify its claim that there are only 5% fake/spam/bot accounts on the social media platform.

Just yesterday, a former Twitter board member Jason Goldman accused Jack Dorsey of “backstabbing” the company’s board that led to Elon Musk’s smooth acquisition of the company, Jason told Bloomberg News (video below).

And today Musk has announced that Jack has left the company altogether. Jack has recently said that he would never work as the CEO of Twitter again, a role that he has served for years at the starting years of the company and later on since 2013 when Twitter needed him back.

Jack stepped down from the role of the CEO of the company last year for the last time and Prag Agarwal was appointed as the new CEO of Twitter.

However, it’s not yet clear if Jack left the board voluntarily or if there was some kind of pressure on him that made him leave the very own company he co-founded back in 2006.

Jack Dorsey has been vocal about what he thinks about Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter. He openly showed support for Elon Musk, as the new owner of the company shared his ideas about how he wanted to see Twitter evolve after he takes over the social media giant.

In a Twitter thread late last month, Jack expressed his thoughts on how can troubles can be fixed on the social media platform, the things that Elon Musk has been asking as a new owner.

I have tried taking a break from Twitter recently, but I must say: the company has always tried to do its best given the information it had. Every decision we made was ultimately my responsibility*. In the cases we were wrong or went too far, we admitted it and worked to correct.

Some things can be fixed immediately, and others require rethinking and reimplementing the entire system. It is important to me that we get critical feedback in all of its forms, but also important that we get the space and time to address it. All of that should be done publicly.

A transparent system, both in policy and operations, is the right way to earn trust. Whether it’s owned by a company or an open protocol doesn’t matter _as much as_ deliberately deciding to be open about every decision and why it was made. It’s not easy to do, but it must happen.

Doing this work means you’re in the arena. Nothing that is said now matters. What matters is how the service works and acts, and how quickly it learns and improves. My biggest failing was that quickness part. I’m confident that part at least is being addressed, and will be fixed.

It’s also crazy and wrong that individuals or companies bear this responsibility. As I’ve said before, I don’t believe any permanent ban (with the exception of illegal activity) is right, or should be possible. This is why we need a protocol that’s resilient to the layers above.
