As per a news story by The Verge, the cryptic tweet from Dorsey is the start of a short thread wherein the ex-CEO talks about how much he trusts Musk in taking over Twitter.
He replied to the Radiohead song tweet, explaining what he is trying to say with his cryptic post.
The ex-CEO began by professing his love for the social media platform he founded, adding that “Twitter is the closest thing we have to a global consciousness.”

MIAMI, FLORIDA – JUNE 04: Jack Dorsey creator, co-founder, and Chairman of Twitter and co-founder & CEO of Square speaks on stage at the Bitcoin 2021 Convention, a crypto-currency conference held at the Mana Convention Center in Wynwood on June 04, 2021 in Miami, Florida.
The tech entrepreneur, who also founded the payments system Block, went on to express his endearment for Twitter. He passionately stated that both the idea and service of his microblogging site “is all that matters” to him.
He wrote that Twitter has also become his “sole issue” and “biggest regret” because it subscribes to the ad system. Not to mention that Wall Street now owns the platform which he co-founded 16 years ago.
Twitter Founder Trusts Elon Musk
According to a recent report by Business Insider, the ex-CEO of Twitter expressed his support to the blockbuster bid of Musk to buy the 16-year-old social networking service.
However, Dorsey clarified that he does not believe that a single person should ever run or own Twitter. Instead, he wrote that it should be at a protocol or public good level rather than being a company.

Nevertheless, the Twitter co-founder concedes, saying that to be able to fix the reality that it is a company, Dorsey says Musk is the “singular solution” he trusts.
The ex-Twitter exec said that he trusts its mission of Musk “To extend the light of consciousness.”
On top of that, the former Twitter boss further added that he thinks that the direction that Musk wants to go is the “right one.”
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.
