This is how we have finished with Elon Musk as the maximum shareholder of Twitter

Elon Musk is the maximum shareholder from twitter. Another piece of news that no one would expect -this is at least not so dramatic, depending on who is looking at it- that this triennium 2020-2022 is leaving us that seems to never end in unthinkable events. Although Musk has had plenty of financial muscle for years to acquire the social network that has become his main speaker, and in some cases also Tesla’s largest marketing platform, his entry as the largest shareholder with 9.2% of the shares and in the Board of Directors opens a stage full of very open ideas for the future.

We don’t know what will come out, but, as observers, the future of Twitter as a company can be very entertaining. Perhaps, those yes, as users not so much.

The truth is that earthquakes at the top of Twitter are certainly not something new. From its four co-founders and the push and pull they had, to the exit, return and return to end up leaving Jack Dorsey again, all the positions and majority shareholders of Twitter have always been in a continuous dance of appearances. Already in 2010, The New York Times interviewed Evan Williams, the veteran of the group of co-founders, who said that “The story of the founding of Twitter changes depending on which of us you ask”.
