Jack Dorsey States His Biggest Regret About Twitter

Share post:

Twitter founder and former CEO Jack Dorsey said Thursday that he regrets that Twitter has become a company. Dorsey’s comment on Twitter came in response to a question about whether Twitter had turned out the way he had imagined.

Regarding the structure he wanted Twitter to operate under, Dorsey claimed that Twitter should be “a protocol” and that the social media platform should not belong to a state or any other company.

In his statement, he said he wished Twitter would work like email, which is not controlled by a central entity and that people who use different email providers can communicate with each other.

Dorsey continues to express regret about Twitter, a company he founded several years ago, and last year announced he was stepping down from his position as the company’s CEO.

He has also shown massive support for Elon Musk’s decision to take over Twitter, a deal that has now been terminated.

Elon Musk announced that he would reverse his earlier decision to take over Twitter for US$44 billion, accusing the company of failing to provide accurate information about spam and bot accounts on the platform.

Twitter, which rejected Musk’s decision to pull out of the deal, sued him, and a trial is expected to begin in October.
