Dorsey’s comments were replies to a Saturday tweet by venture capitalist Garry Tan, who posted,
“The wrong partner on your board can literally make a billion dollars in value evaporate.
“It is not the sole reason behind every startup failure, but it is the true story a surprising percentage of the time.”
Another user replied, “Good boards don’t create good companies, but a bad board will kill a company every time.”
“Big facts,” Dorsey replied.
Dorsey stepped down as the company’s CEO in November.
He remains a member of the board “until his term expires at the 2022 meeting of stockholders,” according to twitter.

Twitter shares have risen roughly 15% since Musk’s 9.2% stake in the company was announced on April 4. Bloomberg reports
