In a Twitter thread , CEO Parag Agrawal has spoken about the possibility of the deal with Elon Musk falling through.
The agreement between Elon Musk and Twitter for the acquisition of the company is going through its first episode of tension, a few weeks after it was announced. With the process in a temporary suspension , Parag Agrawal – CEO of the company – has decided to publish his version of the events, and has chosen his inactive Twitter account to make public his position on this issue, which is keeping a investment of 44 billion dollars.
In a thread , Agrawal has chosen this moment to comment on what he lives within the company, after having replaced Jack Dorsey in the position. “A lot has happened in the last few weeks. I’ve been focused on the business and haven’t said much publicly during this time, but I will now,” he said.
Firstly, the CEO refers to the observations about the change within the team, and has explained the need for these decisions: “Some have been asking why a ‘lame’ CEO would make these changes if they acquire us anyway. The short answer is very simple: While I hope the deal closes, we must be prepared for all scenarios and always do the right thing for Twitter.”
Parag Agrawal makes it clear he’s still in charge of Twitter
According to the manager, this process should not lead to working alone to keep Twitter active and working. “I am responsible for running and operating Twitter, and our job is to build a stronger Twitter every day. No one is working alone to keep the lights on.”
Part of the questions that the CEO of Twitter has had to answer before this publication mentions the need to continue making decisions when the transfer process to a new owner continues: “I will not use the deal as an excuse to avoid making important decisions for health of the company, nor will any leader on Twitter, “he said.
This week, ahead of the temporary suspension of negotiations, Agrawal announced the departures of Kayvon Beykpour and Bruce Falck, heads of consumer products and revenue within the company.
Much of the message shared by Agrawal points to his latent commitment to run Twitter as if it were any other day, including the decisions that cause radical changes in the way of doing business on the social network.
“I will also try to bring more transparency to the work we do,” says Agrawal. “You won’t see my tweets about the ‘topic of the day’ or the loudest sound bite, but about the ongoing, ongoing and challenging work our teams are doing to improve the public conversation on Twitter.”
