“The incorrect partner on your board may make a billion dollars in value evaporate,” venture capitalist Garry Tan tweeted on Saturday, prompting Dorsey’s response.  

“While it is not the single cause of every startup failure, it is the truth in a startling percentage of cases.”  

“Good boards don’t make good companies,” one user responded, “but a terrible board will always kill a company.”  

Dorsey said, “Big facts.”

Why This Happened?

In November, Dorsey resigned as the company’s CEO. According to a Twitter news release from last year, he would continue on the board. Until his tenure expires at the 2022 meeting of stockholders.

Dorsey’s criticism comes after Twitter management issued a limited-time shareholder rights plan. Popularly known as a “poison pill,” on Friday to ward off billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk’s $43 billion offer to buy the firm. It was made the week before, according to Fortune.  

Since Musk’s 9.2 percent interest in the company was declared on April 4, Twitter shares had increased about 15%. Bloomberg claims that Morgan Stanley is counseling Musk, while Twitter has engaged Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan Chase.
