Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Resigns
Jack Dorsey has shared his resignation on Twitter. Along with this, he has also spoken about the reason for his move. He wrote,
Much has been said about the importance of a ‘company led by the founder’. Ultimately I agree that (leadership) is the limiter and the (only) point of failure. I have worked hard to ensure that this company operates outside the realm of its inception and its founders.

After this, Jack named Parag Agarwal as the main reason for his move. Not in a negative, in a positive. They wrote,
The first reason for my resignation is that Parag is going to become the CEO of the company. The board has followed a rigorous process regarding this and unanimously appointed Parag. They have also been my choice for some time now. They understand the company and its needs very profoundly.
Parag’s role has been behind every decision that has turned the company around. They are curious, probing things deeply, rational, creative, demanding, familiar with themselves and humble. He works with heart and mind and is someone from whom I learn every day. I have deep faith in him as CEO (of Twitter).
Jack said that he would continue to help Parag and others until the completion of his tenure in the company to help them in this transition. After that, he will say goodbye to the board. Jack has made it clear that he will not stay in the company anymore after his tenure. He says that he wants to give the entire space to Parag as CEO.
At the end of the resignation, Jack said that it was his own decision, which was not easy. He said that he was both sad and happy about it.
At the same time, Parag Aggarwal has also thanked Jack and the company by tweeting. He wrote,
Thanks to Jack and our entire team. I am very looking forward to the future. Thank you all for showing faith in me and supporting me.
Deep gratitude for @jack and our entire team, and so much excitement for the future. Here’s the note I sent to the company. Thank you all for your trust and support 💙 https://t.co/eNatG1dqH6 pic.twitter.com/liJmTbpYs1
