The former Twitter Chief Executive Officer Jack Dorsey served the company on a silver platter for
Elon Musk "backstabbing" the board of directors of the company one of the company's co-founders was alleged.
Jason Goldman, a former director who was a part of the team that founded Twitter about 10 years ago,
has told Bloomberg News that he believes Dorsey was a major influencer in encouraging Musk to purchase the company in full following
the fact that Musk was originally looking to just become a member of the company's board.
Goldman who was Twitter's vice-president of the product revealed to Bloomberg that Twitter's Chairman, Bret Taylor, and
CEO Parag Agrawal struck a deal with Musk to allow him to join as director, in return for him consenting to not buy additional shares.
An SEC document filed several days later disclosed that Musk had the 9.2 percent part of Twitter -that
the time was equal to roughly 73.4 million shares. This was the largest of any other shareholder.
