Jack Dorsey, co-founder and former CEO of Twitter, responded to the massive layoffs under Elon Musk’s ownership by saying he “has a responsibility for why everyone is in this situation” and that he’s leaving the company “too fast.” has grown. On Friday, Musk fired about half of Twitter’s staff, affecting employees across all departments.

“People on Twitter, then and now, are strong and resilient. They will always find a way, no matter how difficult the moment,” Dorsey writes. “I realize that many are angry with me. I myself am responsible for why everyone is in this situation: I have grown the company size too fast. Sorry about that.”

“Elon is the only solution I trust,” Dorsey said on Twitter in April. “I rely on his mission to expand the light of consciousness.” He expressed the same sentiment in the private text messages revealed as part of Twitter’s lawsuit against Musk. In a message to the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, Dorsey said: “I will not allow this” [the acquisition] fail and will do what it takes. It is too critical for humanity.” Dorsey retained a 2.4 percent stake in Twitter when Musk took ownership, according to a declaration with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Before Musk fired about 50 percent of Twitter’s staff, including 15 percent of the content moderation team, Musk also fired Agrawal and a number of other executives, including CFO Ned Segal and chief of policy Vijaya Gadde. A group of Twitter employees has since filed a class action lawsuit against the company, accusing them of failing to provide them with adequate notice of the layoffs under the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN) and the California WARN Act.
