After his surprise entry to Twitter, tech billionaire Elon Musk has yet to move to the group’s board of directors.

At first it seemed as if he wanted to be content with a passive role as an investor. Shortly thereafter, his invitation to the company’s board of directors became public. Agrawal said the prerequisites for this were a background check and formal approval.
