“Twitter employees, past and present, are strong and resilient.

Jack Dorsey went on to say that he is very grateful to everyone who has worked at Twitter. “I don’t expect it to be reciprocated now…or ever…and I understand.” The Twitter co-founder issued this apology right after the publication by The New York Post of an article claiming that he is “hated on Twitter”. Many employees hold him responsible for the takeover by Elon Musk and the numerous layoffs that will see the payroll reduced by around 50%.
This discussion is Jack Dorsey’s first public comment on Twitter since Elon Musk’s $44 billion takeover was completed on October 27. When the SpaceX founder first announced the takeover, Jack Dorsey backed the move. “Elon is a singular solution that I believe in,” he wrote at the time. “This is the right direction…I mean it from the bottom of my heart.” After Elon Musk’s attempt to break his word, Jack Dorsey remained silent, but in writings released in September, it became clear he wanted the American multi-billionaire to have a more active role on Twitter ever since. some time.
Folks at Twitter past and present are strong and resilient. They will always find a way no matter how difficult the moment. I realize many are angry with me. I own the responsibility for why everyone is in this situation: I grew the company size too quickly. I apologize for that.
