Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal tweeted the news Sunday night.
“Elon’s appointment to the board was to become officially effective 4/9, but Elon shared that same morning that he will no longer be joining the board,” Agrawal said in the tweet
. “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.”
A Twitter spokesperson confirmed Musk decided not to join the Twitter board and referred to Agrawal’s statement.
The development comes about a week after Twitter (TWTR)
said in a regulatory filing
that it plans to appoint the Tesla and SpaceX CEO
to its board for a term that ends in 2024.
Musk recently disclosed he had purchased a more than 9% stake in Twitter, making him the company’s largest shareholder.
Musk has not tweeted about his decision. CNN Business has reached out to Tesla (TSLA)
