Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s deal to purchase Twitter is not finalized yet, but some major changes are already taking place at the social media company.
Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey has stepped down from the company’s board.
“As we shared back in November, Jack would be leaving the Board when ‘his term expires at the 2022 meeting of stockholders,’” a Twitter spokesperson said in a statement.
Dorsey stepped down as the company’s CEO back in November and announced Parag Agrawal, who had been its chief technical officer, would replace him.
Musk responded to the news on Twitter with just four words: “Jack off the board.”
It appears Musk was maybe having some fun with his words as the tweet went viral on Thursday.
Dorsey responded to his tweet with an emoji,
Earlier this month, Musk said his deal with Twitter is “not out of the question” at a lower price.
While speaking at the 2022 All-In Summit, Musk said he’s continued to express skepticism about the company’s estimate of spam and fake accounts.
It was originally reported that around 5% of Twitter is comprised of fake accounts and bots. Now, reports have come out arguing that it could be closer to 20%, which Musk admitted concerns him.
Musk said at the All-In Summit that without providing evidence, it “seems beyond unreasonable” that Twitter’s number of human accounts is near 95%.
“Does anyone have that experience?” Musk asked.
In a series of tweets Monday, Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal defended the company’s estimate of “well under 5%” fake accounts and bots.
Musk had some fun with Agrawal’s lengthy Twitter thread and responded with the poop emoji.
Over the weekend, Musk issued a warning to liberal politicians running California who fostered an unfriendly business environment and allowed chaos on the streets in the Golden State.
Musk took to Twitter over the weekend and wrote: “The Golden State is cooking its golden geese. Sooo tasty at first, but then no more golden eggs.”
He also shared a story from Matt Taibbi, who detailed data and reports about how Democratic rule and policies have driven California into the ground.
Musk clearly believes this given he moved Tesla out of California and to Texas.
