Dorsey

CEO / Chairman / Cofounder

As talk swirled about Twitter’s ban of former President Trump and other issues regarding censorship and misinformation, Dorsey continued to make news with Square, his financial services company. In March 2021, Square bought a majority interest in Jay-Z’s music streamer Tidal for $297 million, then four months later made a $29 billion all-stock deal to acquire Australian buy-now, pay-later service Afterpay. Having primarily focused on producing credit card and QR code scanners for handheld devices and money transfer apps, Square in February purchased $170 million in bitcoin, bringing its total crypto investment to $500 million. Then in November, Dorsey resigned as CEO of Twitter, with CTO Parag Agrawal succeeding him ahead of Dorsey’s exit from the board in 2022, cementing his focus on Square that much further.
