Now, he has won an important victory, following a Twitter board committee review that reaffirmed Dorsey's involvement with the company and leaving him in his current position of chief executive.
Twitter had two new members of the board, including Elliott Management and Silver Lake which, however briefly, suggested a shake-up at the top.
Nevertheless, the committee has been more than happy with Dorsey's leadership so far, confirming that he is fit to lead and therefore must remain in control.
His confirmation wasn't so sure, as in 2020, Elliott Management founder Paul Singer said he would seek to remove Dorsey.
However, none of this came to pass. Dorsey had some turbulent few last months.
In October, he had to appear in front of the United States Senate Commercial Committee and address concerns about tech giants not providing sufficient clarity and transparency in the way they did business.
Dorsey appeared alongside other tech giant executives, such as Mark Zuckerberg from Facebook and Sundar Pichai from Google.
As transparency becomes a mounting issue, many technological companies, including blockchain companies are looking to introduce more clarity in the way they do things.
