Jack Dorsey is attempting to squash rumors that he’ll be reinstated as Twitter’s CEO as soon as Elon Musk takes charge. On Wednesday he tweeted “nah I’ll never be CEO again” in response to somebody predicting he would be returning to steer the firm he co-founded, earlier than going on to say that he doesn’t need the function.
In another response, Dorsey says that “no one ultimately” ought to be Twitter’s CEO, maybe referring to Bluesky, a venture meant to turn Twitter into a decentralized protocol, slightly than a standard social community.
Dorsey has a contentious historical past with the management function at Twitter. The firm’s board fired him from his role as CEO in 2008, simply two years after he helped begin the firm (although he stayed on the board). He returned to the chief govt place in 2015 after Twitter went by two different CEOs, however in 2020, a bunch of buyers on Twitter’s board began trying to replace him. They cited his divided consideration and lack of innovation, however Dorsey managed to hang onto his job. But in November 2021, he stepped down for causes that aren’t completely clear.
After Dorsey’s departure, Parag Agrawal took over as Twitter’s CEO. At this level, although, it looks like he received’t be sticking round for lengthy. Elon Musk is set to buy the company and take it personal (a saga that started with him merely looking to become a board member, then backing out of the deal), and it is rumored that he’ll serve as temporary CEO if the deal really closes. But Musk’s a busy individual — he’s obtained to run SpaceX and Tesla, so it appears seemingly he’ll need to discover another person to take over.
It made sense that individuals thought Jack might be Elon’s selection. Dorsey’s lately been talking some smack on Twitter about Twitter, making it seem to be he’s not significantly proud of the course the firm’s going (although he’s peppered in sufficient constructive tweets to maintain us guessing). He additionally appears to agree with Musk on at least a few points regarding Twitter’s future.
Alas, it feels like Jack is finished with being CEO, saying that “it’s time to roll the dice again.”
nah. it is time to roll the cube again.

Oh, and when you had been questioning “wait, isn’t he still CEO of Square? I mean Block?” The reply is… kinda. Last month, Block introduced that Dorsey’s new title at the firm would be “Block Head.” According to a doc despatched to the US Securities and Exchange Commission, he requested the title change. No marvel folks thought he’d be the good match to run “technoking” Elon Musk’s Twitter.
