The Twitter founder is also happy the company is switching to Elon Musk

Twitter founder Jack Dorsey commented on the sale of the company to entrepreneur Elon Musk in a series of tweets on his profile, saying he was happy with this development and convinced that “the road is the right one”.

Dorsey is 45 years old and is a very influential American entrepreneur: he founded Twitter in 2006 and served as CEO on several occasions, until 2021. His statements could reassure several analysts and observers inside and outside the technology sector about the direction that will take the social network once it is owned by Musk, about whose skills and intentions there are doubts even within Twitter itself.

In his series of tweets, Dorsey wrote that while ideally he doesn't think Twitter should be owned by a single person, “Elon is the only solution I trust, as I trust his mission to extend the light. of awareness ”, whatever that means. More concretely, Dorsey said he shared Musk's goal of making Twitter more inclusive and transparent, as anticipated in the press release with which he announced on Monday the imminent purchase of the company. “The road is the right one … I believe in it with all my heart,” concluded Dorsey.

I love Twitter. Twitter is the closest thing we have to a global consciousness.

In principle, I don't believe anyone should own or run Twitter. It wants to be a public good at a protocol level, not a company. Solving for the problem of it being a company however, Elon is the singular solution I trust. I trust his mission of him to extend the light of consciousness.
