A surprise for all.. Elon Musk outside the Twitter board

American billionaire Elon Musk decided, in a sudden decision, to exit the Twitter board of directors, even before he joined it.

Today, Monday, Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal announced in a tweet on his account that the owner of the famous Tesla company, who acquired the largest share of the company's shares last week, decided not to join the board of directors.

He also published a letter or a brief note he addressed to the employees to inform them of this decision, explaining that this step was taken after several discussions between the members of the Council and Elon himself.

In addition, he indicated that the American billionaire was supposed to join this board on the ninth of this month, to contribute, like other members, to the development of the company, but he informed them on the same day that he decided not to participate. "I think this decision is in the interest of the company," he wrote.

He concluded, stressing that this decision will undoubtedly cause an uproar in the coming days, but he called on the employees of the "blue bird" not to take that commotion into consideration, and to focus on hard and diligent work to move forward with what is in the interest of Twitter and its progress.

It is noteworthy that Musk, who is followed by about 81 million users, has continued since last Monday, after he became the owner of the largest share in the company, by buying 9.2 percent of its shares with an estimated value of about $ 2.9 billion, to direct a series of criticisms of “Twitter”, and even mocked the platform. 

While it was not known the purpose of those sarcastic tweets, launched by one of the world's richest controversial people, and whether he was really seeking to make amendments to the platform, Twitter shares have risen since the announcement of owning the largest stake in it last week.
