Elon Musk accused of 'backstabbing' Jack Dorsey as Twitter shareholders meet

A former company veteran and ex-director says Jack Dorsey served up Twitter on a platter to Elon Musk in the back of his board.

As the company prepares to hold a virtual annual general meeting at 1 p.m. ET Wednesday 

Jason Goldman found clear words for his former colleague during an interview with Bloomberg.

In her remarks, the former vice president of Product and founding member of Twitter spoke of events that occurred on April 5 

the day after Chairman Bret Taylor and CEO Parag Agrawal reached an agreement to make Musk a director in exchange for not expanding his stake beyond 14.9%.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk requested a meeting with Dorsey, who "shared his view that Twitter would be better able to focus on execution as a privately held company," according to a Twitter SEC filing.

The cofounder, who served on the board with Taylor and Agrawal, encouraged Musk to buy the company outright.

Goldman said in the interview that the founder is backtracking on the board when they had a deal in hand to come to a standstill.
