Twitter Appoints Elon Musk To Board Of Directors

Twitter was aiming to keep Musk off the board of directors by preventing him from purchasing even more of the company. But it would seem that is no longer an option as Twitter is appointing Elon Musk to the board of directors.

Musk responded quickly, in a tweet – what else – moments after the Twitter 8K, and just after Twitter’s (soon to be departing) CEO, Parag Agrawal, tweeted that “I’m excited to share that we’re appointing @elonmusk to our board! Through conversations with Elon in recent weeks, it became clear to us that he would bring great value to our Board” adding that Musk is an “intense critic of this service.”

“Looking forward to working with Parag & Twitter board to make significant improvements to Twitter in coming months!” Musk replied, possibly in the most courteous pink slip in recent memory, according to The New York Times.
