Addressing Musk’s decision to decline, Agrawal continued: “I believe this is for the best. We have and will always value input from our shareholders whether they are on our board or not. Elon is our biggest shareholder and we will remain open to his input.
“There will be distractions ahead, but our goals and priorities remain unchanged. The decisions we make and how we execute is in our hands, no one else’s. Let’s tune out of the noise, and stay focused on the work and what we’re building.”
Agrawal’s tweet came after the Tesla chief suggested changes to the Twitter Blue premium subscription service, including slashing its price, banning advertising and giving the option to pay in the cryptocurrency dogecoin, over the weekend, The Guardian reported.
Musk also asked his more than 81 million followers whether Twitter is “dying” and if its headquarters should be turned into a homeless shelter.
And he created a poll asking whether the letter “w” should be removed from the Twitter, with the only options being “yes” and “of course”.
