Ever since he founded Twitter, Jack Dorsey remained as the company’s CEO for many years until the board ousted him. He was battling against members of that board over a wide variety of reasons that ultimately ostracized him from the high seat at the table.
Although he’s remained as an important share holder from the company, Jack has limited his interactions with the company but he is slowly making a more active comeback after Elon Musk’s offer to buy Twitter was made. He and the Tesla founder are minds that think alike, especially when it comes to free speech. Jack’s sole purpose to create this platform was to perpetuate a place where ideas could flow freely.
Little did he know that he was also creating the single most important journalistic tool that exists today. There is no understanding the world in real time without Twitter, it opened a large window of opportunities to bring the truth to the screen of your phone as it happens.
But being the company’s CEO for so many years was taxing for Jack, he was relieved to leave his position when it happened. Now, Elon Musk’s attempt to protect free speech from people who don’t understand how it works is something that brought Dorsey fully back on board the ship. But he recently revealed that he won’t trade his peace of mind for that cause.
Would Jack Dorsey be Twitter’s CEO again?
Being the CEO of a major tech company is already a massive endeavour but doing so at Twitter during such a complicated time for free speech will be incredibly stressful. Elon Musk might act as the company’s CEO for a few months while he finds a suitable person who can fill in the role.
Youtuber Charles Wieand decided to make a prediction about the position: “I predict that Elon Musk will eventually just ask Jack to be CEO of Twitter,” wrote Wieand. But Dorsey is certain he is never taking back the job, he is too comfortable now to give all that up. This is what he responded:
Nah, I’ll never be CEO again.
