Elon Musk Now Says He Will Resign From Twitter…. This Still Seems A Bit “Sus” To Me

One hour ago, Elon Musk posted this on his Twitter account:

Let’s unpack this. First of all, he has to find someone “foolish enough to take the job”. While I am free to be surprised, I don’t know anyone who would be foolish enough to take that job. After all, Elon doesn’t mention anything about divesting himself in terms of his ownership of Twitter. Which means anyone who is foolish enough to take this job would just be Elon’s puppet. So don’t hold your breath in terms of a candidate stepping forward anytime soon. It also means that without a timetable of any sort, he’ll be CEO for weeks, months, or years.

Second, he’s still going to have control of the software and servers team. Seeing as Twitter is a platform that runs on software and servers that you connect to via a client, that means that Elon still has control over Twitter. He just won’t be the CEO which gives him plausible deniability for anything that happens to be bad at Twitter.

The fact is that this is meaningless and you should not be fooled. Elon is clearly trying to engineer a situation where he looks like he’s abiding by the results of this poll that he put on Sunday. But at the same time still have control over Twitter. It’s just smoke and mirrors. And I would like to think that we’re all wise to Elon’s games by now.

Nice try Elon.
