Is Twitter going Private?

It’s been quite a past few days in the social media jungle, hasn’t it? Unless you’ve been trying to colonize Mars or bore a tunnel under the 5 freeway in Los Angeles you’ve probably heard about Elon Musk trying to buy Twitter.

Twitter’s board doesn’t want that to happen and is making like a captured spy and adopting poison pill tactics. It has come to light that the board owns collectively less than 2% of the company raising questions about management’s interests and how they align with shareholders.

In the startup space, this typically isn’t an issue as company founders and early employees often own large percentages of their companies. Investors’ interests are closely tied to those of the people managing the companies, which keeps everyone on the same page and working towards a common goal.

Startups led by founders and employees with high ownership stakes have a competitive advantage over those beholden to outside interests who may only be looking for a quick flip rather than building a sustainable company that can grow for years and decades to come. As I look for my next startup investment, I have to consider who my fellow owners will be, and if their interests will be complementary or competitive with my own.

It will be fun to watch the Twitter saga play out over the coming days, but consider it a cautionary tale for companies whose boards and management teams don’t have much skin in the game.
