Twitter cofounder and former CEO Jack Dorsey responded to Elon Musk's acquisition of the platform in a somewhat cryptic tweet thread Monday night, which kicked off with a link to the Radiohead song "Everything In Its Right Place."
Elon’s goal of creating a platform that is 'maximally trusted and broadly inclusive' is the right one. This is also [Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal'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 it with all my heart," Dorsey said.
Dorsey also noted that Twitter has been "my sole issue and my biggest regret," saying, "It has been owned by Wall Street and the ad model. Taking it back from Wall Street is the correct first step."
In recent weeks, Dorsey has criticized Twitter's board and suggested he takes issue with its stance as a public company.
In his Monday thread, Dorsey said he doesn't believe "in principle ... anyone should own or run Twitter."
"It wants to be a public good at a protocol level, not a company," he said. "Solving for the problem of it being a company however, Elon is the singular solution I trust."
Dorsey and Musk have also developed something of a billionaire bromance over the years. When then-Twitter CEO Dorsey was under fire from activist investors, Musk tweeted, "Just want [to] say that I support @Jack as Twitter CEO. He has a good ❤️." More recently, Musk complimented Dorsey's new "Block Head" title at his financial services firm, Block.
