Elon Musk finally acquired Twitter this week and the company’s former CEO Jack Dorsey sounds rather pleased about it. 

In a new lengthy Twitter thread, Dorsey discussed his hopes for the future of his former company, also hailing Musk as the “singular solution I trust.”

“I love Twitter. Twitter is the closest thing we have to a global consciousness,” the thread began after the sharing of the Radiohead song ‘Everything In Its Right Place’. “The idea and service is all that matters to me, and I will do whatever it takes to protect both. Twitter as a company has always been my sole issue and my biggest regret. It has been owned by Wall Street and the ad model. Taking it back from Wall Street is the correct first step.”

Dorsey continued: “In principle, I don’t believe anyone should own or run Twitter. It wants to be a public good at a protocol level, not a company. Solving for the problem of it being a company however, Elon is the singular solution I trust. I trust his mission to extend the light of consciousness.”

He ended by applauding Musk’s vision for Twitter: “Elon’s goal of creating a platform that is “maximally trusted and broadly inclusive” is the right one. This is also @paraga’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.”

“I’m so happy Twitter will continue to serve the public conversation. Around the world, and into the stars!” he added at the end of the thread.

Dorsey does sound very sincere in his comments, although if I was set to make just under one billion dollars through someone buying my former company, I’d probably also call them the “singular solution I trust.”
