Nagpur: Tesla CEO Elon Musk has decided not to join the Twitter board, the microblogging site’s CEO Pradeep Agrawal announced today.
The Twitter CEO took to the site and announced the development. “Elon has decided not to join our board. I sent a brief note to the company, sharing with you all here.”
Agrawal mentioned that the team was excited to offer Musk a position in the company and was supposed to join from 4/9. He said, “Elon’s appointment to the board was to become officially effective 4/9, but Elon shared that same morning he will no longer be joining the board. I believe this is for the best.”
The SpaceX CEO is currently the biggest shareholder in the company. Last week, Musk purchased a 9,2 per cent stake in Twitter and since then Musk has suggested several changes that the platform should be brought. One of the changes was the Twitter ‘edit button’ which the company said is coming for everyone soon and will be tested for Twitter Blue users.
Agrawal also said, “there will be distractions ahead, but our goals and priorities remain unchanged. The decisions we make and how we execute is in our hands, no one else’s,” which hints that Twitter will not be bringing in changes suggested by the SpaceX CEO.
