As Twitter stumbles from one controversy to the next, co-founder and former CEO Jack Dorsey has changed his tune on Elon Musk.
Shortly after Elon Musk began his on-again, off-again journey to buy Twitter, Dorsey came out in favor of Musk’s attempt, expressing his faith in his ability to help the company.
Fast-forward to mid-2023, and Dorsey has changed his tune, saying he doesn’t believe Musk “acted right.” According to TechCrunch, Dorsey was responding to a question from Bluesky user Jason Goldman, asking if Musk had been the “best possible [steward].”
Dorsey’s response was revealing and provided an opportunity to highlight how Bluesky, the new social media network he is backing, is different:
No. Nor do I think he acted right after realizing his timing was bad. Nor do I think the board should have forced the sale. It all went south. But it happened and all we can do now is build something to avoid that ever happening again. So I’m happy Jay and team and nostr devs exist and building it.
The revelation is quite the about-face and adds fuel to the fire of accusations that Musk is destroying Twitter from the inside.
