Technology Desk: Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey’s name is likely to make it to the list of ‘crazy’ technology entrepreneurs. They usually do not remember much of the traditional business behavior. Dorsey did not even remember the title of the chief executive, he has changed his title in the digital transaction company ‘Block’ this time.
Dorsey has been the chief executive of ‘Block’ for so long. Jack Dorsey is now the ‘Block Head’.
Documents submitted to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Friday say Dorsey’s surname is now “block head.” Block has also changed its own rules and regulations to reflect Dorsey’s role in the organization. The company has removed the obligation to have a CEO and a president.
CNBC reports that Dorsi and Tesla chief Elon Musk’s recent actions are linked to the name change. Last year, Musk declared himself the “Techno king of Tesla”. Although he is still officially in the position of ‘CEO’, he called the position ‘Not Real’.
Recently, Musk started buying and selling Twitter. And one of Twitter’s co-founders is Dorsey; Although he left the post of chief executive last year, he is still on the board of directors of the organization.
Dorsey has been expressing the same attitude for a long time. He tweeted in 2012, “Names like CEO stand in the way of doing the right thing. I respect those who ignore the last name and fight for the right cause. ”
Titles, like "CEO", get in the way of doing the right thing. Respect to the people who ignore titles, and fight like hell for what is right.
