Steve Jobs and Elon Musk hated running two companies at once, so why is Twitter's CEO so eager? — Ever since Jack Dorsey was pushed out as Twitter CEO in 2008, he has closely followed the rhetoric, philosophy and career playbook of his " mentor from afar" Steve Jobs to make a comeback. That long effort culminated on Monday with the announcement that Dorsey will officially return as the permanent CEO of Twitter while continuing to serve as the CEO of payment startup Square.

So, Jack Dorsey, what comes next for Twitter? The public has some ideas. — Jack Dorsey has in the past called Twitter his "life's work." On Monday, the cofounder and newly named permanent CEO of Twitter made it clear that there's much left to do in order to ensure his life's work doesn't go to waste.

Jack Dorsey takes over as Twitter's permanent CEO — Almost exactly seven years to the day after Jack Dorsey was pushed out of the top spot at Twitter, Jack is officially back for the longterm. Twitter confirmed Monday that it has named Dorsey, the bearded, soft-spoken, Steve Jobs- lookalike cofounder who is often credited with coming up with the original idea for the social network, as its permanent CEO following three months of him serving in the role on an interim basis.
