"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," Dorsey tweeted.

Dorsey called Musk buying Twitter a step in the right direction for the website.

"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," he added.

Dorsey, the maverick co-founder of Twitter, on November 29, 2021 suddenly announced his resignation. Parag Agarwal, an IITian who was CTO at Twitter, was named his replacement.
