This week, Jack Dorsey stepped down as CEO of Twitter. The next day, Square changed its name to Block Inc. The move clearly illustrates the company's direction moving forward. The name "Square" became synonymous with it's point-of-sale seller's business, and the executive team wanted to rebarand the parent company in a similar fashion as Facebook's Meta.
