Musk v Twitter what just happened?

My theory…

Musk is not diversified. He has a lot of irons in different fires. He wants a certain freedom. But he has a few major business responsibilities. Running Twitter suddenly seemed like a waste of time to him. Not only a waste of time but he’d have to pay to play.

Heard something on NPR while driving to the grocery store that makes a lot more sense… if he’s on the board, he’s got a fiduciary requirement to do what’s best for the company, which includes not tweeting random things at 3am because he suddenly got an oracle from Cthulhu (or was it Belphegor). By skipping the board thing, he frees himself to continue being himself.

Spot on! The board invitation was an attempt to derail his mission – a siren song.

At the same time, as CEO of Tesla he has similar fiduciary responsibilities, and that certainly hasn’t stopped him channeling messages from Belphegor.

mmmms,

That is for sure.

But if you look Musk prides himself on working manically all day long. Where is he supposed to get the time to run little old Twitter? It does not take much of a cost/benefit analysis to see it is an absolute waste of his time.
