A treasure trove of messages sent by Elon Musk has arisen in advance of one upcoming negotiation in between Twitter Inc TWTR and the Tesla Inc TSLA CHAIRMAN.
What happened: Twitter founder Jack Dorsey Musk said in the news that he quit being the social media platform’s CEO because a “new platform is needed.”
“It can’t be a company. I believe it has to be an open-source protocol funded by some kind of foundation that doesn’t own the protocol, just pushes it,” he said.
“If there is a centralized entity behind it, they will be attacked,” Dorsey added. “It’s not complicated work, it just has to be done right so it’s resilient to what’s happened to Twitter.”
