Jack Dorsey Expected To Step Down as Twitter’s CEO
CNBC reported that Twitter chief executive Jack Dorsey is expected to step down from his position leading the social media company, citing multiple sources.
According to CNBC, it’s unclear why Dorsey, who co-founded Twitter and currently serves as chief executive of financial technology firm Square, will step down. Private equity firm Elliot Management previously attempted to oust Dorsey in 2020, the outlet reported.
It’s unclear who is set to succeed, Dorsey, CNBC said. Twitter’s share price rose 11% following the news reports, according to CNBC.
In recent months, Twitter unrolled several new features for its platform, including “Spaces” that allows users to communicate with one another in a voice chat mode. The social media company also released a feature called “Twitter Blue,” which enables users to access ad-free news coverage and other features through the Twitter platform.

Notes from the Editor
Dorsey, known for his far-left activism, censoring anyone he disagrees with, maybe stepped down, but with a majority stake in Twitter, one would be foolish to think that the policies of Twitter will change.
Twitter rose in prominence due to Trump’s use of them, then proceeded to ban Trump as soon as he was out of office. This is now being challenged in the court of law; since Twitter works hand in hand with the Biden administration over censorship, they are acting as an agent of the government; thus, censoring free speech is illegal.
One hopes that Trump will win on this challenge, and it should be something all should support; no matter what side of the political aisle you are from, free speech should be seen as a sacred line, one that should never be crossed. Sadly, this is not how many on the far-left see it; they want free speech for only themselves and those that agree with them. The rest should be silenced/
