It feels like it’s been along time coming, but Jack Dorsey has finally resigned and stepped down as the CEO of Twitter.
You would think that this would be a great day and that someone better would step in to clean up the mess that he’s made while there. But that’s not the case at all.
If you were banking on Twitter’s stock to go up yesterday then you’re right, it was a great day, as long as you got out before it came crashing back down.
Otherwise, there’s not much to rejoice about. The man replacing him is Parag Agrawal and he’s nothing to be thrilled about unless you’re a liberal who hates America.
Dorsey, 45, was serving as both the CEO of Twitter and Square, his digital payments company. Dorsey will remain a member of the board until his term expires at the 2022 meeting of stockholders, the company said. Salesforce President and COO Bret Taylor will become the chairman of the board, succeeding Patrick Pichette, a former Google executive, who will remain on the board as chair of the audit committee.
“I’ve decided to leave Twitter because I believe the company is ready to move on from its founders,” Dorsey said in a statement, though he didn’t provide any additional detail on why he decided to resign.
Agrawal, 37, will have to meet Twitter’s aggressive internal goals. The company said earlier this year it aims to have 315 million monetizable daily active users by the end of 2023 and to at least double its annual revenue in that year.

Agrawal, however, is just as much of an enemy of everything good about America and our freedoms. In an interview last year he stated, “Our role is not to be bound by the First Amendment.” He insisted that it was more important to think about how times have changed rather than free speech.
Even more controversial is a tweet from 2010 in which he wrote, “If they are not gonna make a distinction between muslims and extremists, then why should I distinguish between white people and racists.”
"If they are not gonna make a distinction between muslims and extremists, then why should I distinguish between white people and racists."

Does this really need an answer? First of all, there is a distinction between Muslims and extremists. But to ask why he should make a distinction between white people and racists…how about because it’s the right thing to do. Does he just purposely want to be a spiteful racist? That literally makes him a racist.
