Elon Musk just became an important stakeholder at Twitter. He was asked to become a board member and he reportedly refused this.
It’s been revealed that Twitter announced that he had declined their offer to join the company’s board.
“Elon Musk has decided not to join our board,” Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal said in a statement.
He continued and said: “We announced on Tuesday that Elon would be appointed to the Board contingent on a background check and formal acceptance. Elon’s appointment to the board was to become officially effective 4/9, but Elon shared that same morning that he will no longer be joining the board.”

He also said:
“There will be distractions ahead, but our goals and priorities remain unchanged,” Agrawal later added.
“The decisions we make and how we execute is in our hands, no one else’s. Let’s tune out the noise, and stay focused on the work and what we’re building.”
Shortly after the announcement was made, Musk tweeted out an emoji of a face with a hand over its mouth, which usually means “to cover your mouth, not to speak, to mute” and is typically used to “express emotions of rapture, smirk, shy smile, or happiness.”
I’d bet anything it was this.
Since the Board announcement he’s been crowdsourcing ideas and chatting via Twitter.
He quickly realized that’s all over as soon as he actually joins the Board and tapped out. https://t.co/NDolsbF9tO

Musk in the news
It’s been recently reported that Elon Musk wants to save the day regarding the war between Russia and Ukraine.
Not too long ago, we revealed that Musk has challenged Vladimir Putin to single combat, in an apparent attempt to put an end to the invasion of Ukraine. People hopped in the comments, some to laugh at his joke, and others to criticize him.
Musk challenged the Russian president through Twitter, a medium banned in Russia. To show he was serious, he wrote Putin’s name and Ukraine in Russian.
