From fighting armies of bots to quashing rumours about posting his beard hair to rapper Azealia Banks, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey leads an unusual life of luxury.
Dorsey has had a turbulent career in Silicon Valley. After cofounding Twitter in 2006, he was booted as the company’s CEO two years later, but returned in 2015 having set up his second company, Square.
Since then, he has led the company through the techlash that has engulfed social media companies, at one point testifying before Congress alongside Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg.
His latest threat comes from Elliott Management, an activist investor seeking Dorsey’s removal from Twitter, per Bloomberg reporting. The firm holds substantial stock in Twitter, and four board seats.
Dorsey has elsewhere provoked his fair share of controversy and criticism, extolling fasting and ice baths as part of his daily routine. His existence is not entirely spartan, however. Like some other billionaires, he owns a stunning house, dates models, and drives fast cars.
