On Monday April 25, Twitter management accepted Musk’s offer to acquire the company for $44 billion and take it private at $54.20 a share.
Reacting to news of the takeover agreement on Twitter, Dorsey posted a Spotify link to the Radiohead song “Everything In Its Right Place,” and said Musk is the “singular solution I trust” to run the company he co-created in 2006 and that he“ trust his mission to extend the light of consciousness.”
I love Twitter. Twitter is the closest thing we have to a global consciousness.
The idea and service is all that matters to me, and I will do whatever it takes to protect both. Twitter as a company has always been my sole issue and my biggest regret. It has been owned by Wall Street and the ad model. Taking it back from Wall Street is the correct first step..”
In principle, I don’t believe anyone should own or run Twitter. It wants to be a public good at a protocol level, not a company. Solving for the problem of it being a company however, Elon is the singular solution I trust. I trust his mission to extend the light of consciousness.
Elon’s goal of creating a platform that is “maximally trusted and broadly inclusive” is the right one. This is [email protected]’s goal, and why I chose him. Thank you both for getting the company out of an impossible situation. This is the right path…I believe it with all my heart.
I’m so happy Twitter will continue to serve the public conversation. Around the world, and into the stars!
