Jack Dorsey exits Twitter board of directors months after departing CEO role

Jack Dorsey has stepped down from the Twitter board of directors, a move signaled last fall when he departed the social media giant's C-suite.

Dorsey was due to exit the board of directors following a Wednesday shareholder meeting, scheduled for 1 p.m. ET. The exit was planned and came as part of November's announcement that Dorsey would step down as Twitter CEO. 

The exit comes during a tumultuous period for Twitter, given the still-in-flux takeover bid by billionaire Elon Musk.

According to the Washington Post, executives at the firm reportedly declined to answer shareholder questions about the Musk deal, saying that they would discuss it at a later date. Musk was not present during the meeting.
