Jack Dorsey, co-founder and former CEO of Twitter, criticized the current head of the site, the American billionaire Elon Musk.
In a discussion on his new platform, BlueSky, Dorsey said that “things took a turn for the worse after the Tesla chief bought the site,” considering that Musk had to withdraw from the Twitter acquisition.
Dorsey was asked by Bluesky platform users whether he believed Musk was a suitable leader for Twitter. Dorsey responded that he did not think so, and he believed Musk’s timing was poor, and that the board should not have compelled the sale.
“But it happened, and all we can do now is build something to avoid that happening again.”
This statement is a sudden shift from Dorsey’s statement in April 2022, in which he considered that Musk’s takeover of Twitter was the “only solution” that he was confident would succeed in saving the platform.
Musk’s acquisition, who is also CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, has sparked a lot of controversy over his method of managing the platform and questions about the efficiency of his management.
