Twitter board member and cofounder criticizes functioning of Twitter’s board

Jack Dorsey, who co-founded Twitter Inc, took aim at the social media company in a series of tweets, following Elon Musk’s $43 billion takeover offer.

Dorsey, who incidentally is on Twitter’s board, said Twitter’s board has “consistently been the dysfunction of the company.”

In response to a tweet asking him why he did not “do anything about it” when he was its CEO, Dorsey expressed frustration at his limited ability to speak freely.

“So much to say … but nothing that can be said,” tweeted Dorsey.

Dorsey’s tweets come in the wake of an upheaval in the micro-blogging social media company after Musk disclosed his 9.2% stake. Twitter has also adopted a “poison pill” to limit Musk’s ability to raise his stake in the company.

“I really wish I could break through all the abstraction here and answer you but alas and woe,” tweeted Dorsey to a thread urging him to share his thoughts.

Musk has been vocal in his criticism of Twitter’s strategies and its board saying the salary of Twitter’s board members would be $0 if his bid succeeds; this would save the company $3 million every year.

Dorsey continues to be on Twitter’s board; his term is due to expire in May at the company’s upcoming annual general meeting.
