Twitter founder and former CEO Jack Dorsey once again denied suggestions that he could lead the platform in the future. Would you accept the position as CEO of Twitter, a Twitter user asked Dorsey on Wednesday after just one minute, Dorsey simply said no.
The tweet was part of a longer thread started on Wednesday by an electric vehicle news outlet called Whole Mars Blog, which tweeted that Elon Musk was destroying Twitter when the reality was that Twitter was headed for bankruptcy and was no longer sustainable is increasing profitability for the first time in its history.
Dorsey responded that both the misconception and the reality stated in the tweet were wrong and that Twitter would live and thrive but it would take some time. The user agreed with Dorsey in saying that it is really hard to achieve while preserving what makes the platform special.
Jack said that what makes Twitter special are the people who use it, not the company behind it. Dorsey did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment on his tweet. Twitter’s new boss Musk said he would find a new leader for Twitter and eventually reduce his time at the company, while on Wednesday requested to defend his $55 billion pay in court package as Tesla CEO.
Dorsey previously dismissed suggestions that he could return as CEO in May when Musk initially agreed to buy Twitter. YouTuber Charles Weind tweeted that he had predicted that Musk would ask Jack to become Twitter’s CEO, but Dorsey replied that I would never be CEO again.
Dorsey further said that no, it’s time to roll the dice again and he thinks that no one will ultimately be a good leader for Twitter. Musk is purging employees in three weeks as he lost thousands in his first week on Twitter the employees were fired.
Dorsey took responsibility for Musk’s layoff by tweeting I grew the company too fast I apologize Dorsey had previously rallied behind Musk, saying he was the only solution to leading Twitter.
