Do you know who Peter Thiel is?
He was among FB’s first investors, and he is linked to Trump and Elon Musk.
Today news broke that he was stepping down from Facebook/Meta board! This is noteworthy and intriguing because Jack Dorsey shared he was stepping down from Twitter’s board on the same day.
This is not a coincidence.
How are the ‘coincidence theorists’ explain that Jack Dorsey is leaving Twitter and Peter Thiel is leaving Facebook/META on the very same day?
We have a simple one: it’s happening.

Peter Thiel, the tech investor and conservative provocateur who has advised Mark Zuckerberg for nearly two decades at Facebook parent Meta Platforms Inc., will step down from the company’s board after Meta’s annual shareholder meeting in May.
Thiel, 54, who became a director in 2005 after an early investment in Facebook, plans to increase his political support of former President Donald Trump’s agenda during the 2022 election and doesn’t want his political activities to be a distraction for Facebook, according to a person close to Thiel.
His focus will be on backing Blake Masters, JD Vance and others who advance the Trump agenda, the person added, referring to Republican candidates for U.S. Senate.
“Peter is truly an original thinker who you can bring your hardest problems and get unique suggestions,” Zuckerberg said in a statement. “He has served on our board for almost two decades, and we’ve always known that at some point he would devote his time to other interests.”
Thiel helped elect Trump president in 2016 by donating money and speaking on his behalf at the Republican National Convention. When Trump became president, Thiel worked on his transition team while nominating colleagues to fill government positions, including former Thiel Capital Chief of Staff Michael Kratsios, who served as the chief technology officer of the White House until last year. Thiel has continued to support Trump while meeting with members of the Republican Party and members of the far-right in recent years.

Thiel’s departure will mark the end of one of the most productive — and harshly criticized — partnerships between a chief executive officer and an investor in all of business. Thiel has been a close adviser to Zuckerberg ever since the duo met through Napster co-founder Sean Parker, when Facebook was still just a social network for college campuses. Thiel was instrumental in shaping Zuckerberg’s ethos during the early days of Facebook and its relentless pursuit of growth.
