Do not call him CEO: Jack Dorsey says he is ‘Block Head’ now

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Technology entrepreneur and former Twitter boss Jack Dorsey has a new title: Block Head.

A regulatory revelation Friday from digital payment firm Block Inc. says its co-founder Dorsey is changing her role from Block’s CEO, president and chairman to “Block Head and Chairperson,” with immediate effect.

It’s only a semantic change, and there “will be no change in Mr. Dorsey’s roles and responsibilities,” the case states.

Dorsey co-founded the payment company as Square in 2009. It was renamed Block in December to reflect growth to include music streaming service Tidal, Cash App and TBD54566975, a financial services platform primarily focused on Bitcoin.

Dorsey also co-founded Twitter and was its CEO until he resigned in November. Twitter has said he will remain on the board until May.

Dorsey’s title change resembles a Tesla application last year, with CEO Elon Musk adding “Technoking of Tesla” to his official role at the electric car maker. The two know each other – Musk now offers to buy Twitter for more than $ 43 billion.
