Jack Dorsey says he’ll by no means be the CEO of Twitter once more

Jack Dorsey says he’ll never be the CEO of Twitter again


Jack Dorsey is attempting to squash rumors that he’ll be reinstated as Twitter’s CEO as soon as Elon Musk takes cost. On Wednesday he tweeted “nah I’ll by no means be CEO once more” in response to somebody predicting he can be returning to steer the corporate he co-founded, earlier than occurring to say that he doesn’t need the function.

In one other response, Dorsey says that “nobody finally” ought to be Twitter’s CEO, maybe referring to Bluesky, a undertaking meant to flip Twitter right into a decentralized protocol, reasonably than a conventional social community.

Dorsey has a contentious historical past with the management function at Twitter. The corporate’s board fired him from his function as CEO in 2008, simply two years after he helped begin the corporate (although he stayed on the board). He returned to the chief government place in 2015 after Twitter went by two different CEOs, however in 2020, a gaggle of buyers on Twitter’s board began attempting to switch him. They cited his divided consideration and lack of innovation, however Dorsey managed to hold onto his job. However in November 2021, he stepped down for causes that aren’t utterly clear.

After Dorsey’s departure, Parag Agrawal took over as Twitter’s CEO. At this level, although, it looks like he gained’t be sticking round for lengthy. Elon Musk is set to purchase the corporate and take it personal (a saga that started with him merely seeking to turn out to be a board member, then backing out of the deal), and it is rumored that he’ll function momentary CEO if the deal truly closes. However Musk’s a busy particular person — he’s acquired to run SpaceX and Tesla, so it appears possible he’ll wish to discover another person to take over.

It made sense that individuals thought Jack may very well be Elon’s alternative. Dorsey’s not too long ago been speaking some smack on Twitter about Twitter, making it seem to be he’s not notably proud of the route the corporate’s going (although he’s peppered in sufficient constructive tweets to maintain us guessing). He additionally appears to agree with Musk on no less than a number of factors regarding Twitter’s future.

Alas, it feels like Jack is finished with being CEO, saying that “it’s time to roll the cube once more.”

Oh, and when you have been questioning “wait, isn’t he nonetheless CEO of Sq.? I imply Block?” The reply is… kinda. Final month, Block introduced that Dorsey’s new title on the firm can be “Block Head.” In line with a doc despatched to the US Securities and Alternate Fee, he requested the title change. No marvel folks thought he’d be the proper match to run “technoking” Elon Musk’s Twitter.
