Who is Jack Dorsey?

Summary:
Jack Dorsey has resigned from his position as CEO of Twitter. The 45-year old, who often identifies as a libertarian, remains CEO of his other company, payments processor Square.There was no official explanation for his resignation other than that the company was “ready to move on from its founders”. But, as the FT reported, the departure seems to have been planned for more than a year and could be a concession to activist investor Elliott Management. Elliott had grown concerned the Rasputin lookalike was becoming distracted by his other job at Square, but also by his libertarian interests, including bitcoin.What we at FT Alphaville want to know is whether Dorsey’s resignation might actually be an attempt to stealth endorse at an executive level the wider “Great Resignation” trend
