After Tesla CEO Elon Musk bought Twitter for $ 44 billion, its Indian CEO Parag Agrawal and Twitter founder Jack Dorsey took to micro-blogging platform Twitter to share their views on this biggest development in recent times.
Twitter founder Jack Dorsey has expressed his faith in Musk’s leadership. He also said taking the company back from Wall Street was the ‘correct first step’ towards rebuilding the company.
“The idea and the service are all that matter to me and I will do everything to protect both. Twitter as a business has always been my only problem and my biggest regret. It has been owned by Wall Street and the advertising model. To take that back from Wall Street is the right first step, ”Dorsey wrote in a series of tweets.
Elon’s goal of creating a platform that is “maximally trusted and broadly inclusive” is the right one. This is too @paragas 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 in it with all my heart.

“Basically, I do not mean anyone to own or operate Twitter. It wants to be a public good at the protocol level, not a business. Elon solves the problem of being a business, but Elon is the unique solution I trust. I trusts his mission to expand the light of consciousness, ”he added.
Twitter has a purpose and a relevance that affects the whole world. Deeply proud of our teams and inspired by the work that has never been more important. https://t.co/5iNTtJoEHf

He also expressed his belief in Musk’s vision for the company. “Elon’s goal of creating a platform that is ‘maximally trusted and broadly inclusive’ is the right one. This is also @paraga’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 in it with all my heart, “he wrote in a subsequent tweet.
Meanwhile, CEO Parag Agrawal said on Tuesday that the micro-blogging platform has a purpose and a relevance that affects the whole world.
“Deeply proud of our teams and inspired by the work that has never been more important. I know this is a significant change and you will probably work on what this means for you and Twitter’s future,” Agrawal tweeted. He was to address Twitter staff at City Hall about what this takeover means for them and allay their fears.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk said Monday that he hopes his worst critics should stay on Twitter. “I hope even my worst critics stay on Twitter, because that’s what freedom of speech means,” he tweeted. “And be my love in the rain,” Musk added, writing from the famous American poet Robert Frost’s poem “A Line-storm Song.”
