Shortly after Elon Musk acquired Twitter for $44 billion, the social media platform’s co-founder and former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said in a thread that the platform was the closest thing to “global consciousness.” He also noted that Twitter is his biggest regret as a company because it’s owned by Wall Street and the ad model.
Dorsey noted that taking Twitter off Wall Street was the first step in the right direction. He also said, “Basically, I don’t think anyone should own or operate Twitter. It wants to be a protocol-level public good, not a corporation. However, Elon is the only solution that I trust to solve the problem that it is a company. I trust its mission to expand the light of consciousness.”
Dorsey went on to state that Musk’s and current CEO Parag Agrawal’s goal of creating a platform that is “maximally trustworthy and comprehensive” is correct. He thanked both of them for “getting Twitter out of an impossible situation.”
He signed off by saying he’s pleased to see that Twitter “will continue to serve the public conversation. Around the world and to the stars!”
