Twitter on Monday declined comment on how long Elon Musk might remain CEO or appoint someone else.

In another filing on Monday, Elon Musk revealed that he became the sole director of Twitter as a result of the takeover.

“The following persons, who were directors of Twitter prior to the effective time of the merger, are no longer directors of Twitter: Bret Taylor, Parag Agrawal, Omid Kordestani, David Rosenblatt, Martha Lane Fox, Patrick Pichette, Egon Durban, Fei-Fei Li and Mimi Alemayehou,” Elon Musk said in the filing.

Shortly afterward, Elon Musk tweeted that the move to dissolve the board is just temporary, without elaborating.
