Jack Dorsey, the co-founder and former CEO of Twitter, has publicly criticized Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk for his actions during the acquisition of the social media company. In a series of tweets posted on Friday, Dorsey suggested that Musk should have walked away from the platform and paid the $1 billion fee instead. He also expressed concerns over Musk's vision for Twitter.
Since acquiring Twitter, Elon Musk has faced criticism from various industry leaders as well as users of the platform. Despite these challenges, however, it appears that Twitter has managed to break even financially.
Dorsey took issue with what he described as a lack of inclusivity in Musk's approach to running Twitter: "It is important for [Twitter] to be maximally trusted and broadly inclusive," he wrote. Furthermore, Dorsey argued that it is essential for such a platform to operate at a protocol level in order to serve as a public good.
On the other hand, Jack Dorsey acknowledged that having Elon Musk acquire control over Twitter was preferable compared to allowing hedge funds or activist investors gaining ownership. According to him, this takeover was necessary because "Twitter would have never survived as a public company." He also claimed that despite nearly dying once before under different management structures in its history so far; if given enough time - growth could still happen again eventually when properly nurtured by leadership who understands its core values deeply enough where they align their own interests alongside those held most dear throughout society at large today too (such examples might include freedom expression).
In an attempt by Insider reporters seeking comment regarding recent events surrounding their organization specifically involving both key figures mentioned previously here within our article text already published elsewhere online earlier this week - no further response nor clarification came back after multiple inquiries had been submitted directly via email correspondence addresses provided upon request only which did not yield any satisfactory answers forthcoming whatsoever either way thus far concerning whether or not any official statements might eventually be made later down line at all perhaps sometime soon enough even though nothing new has transpired just yet so we shall continue monitoring developments closely moving forward with great anticipation indeed!
Overall, the tension between Jack Dorsey and Elon Musk highlights the complexities and challenges associated with managing a platform as influential as Twitter. As the social media giant continues to evolve under Musk's leadership, it remains to be seen how its vision will align with that of its co-founder's original intentions for "maximal trust" and inclusivity.
