Elon Musk: I am excited to welcome Linda Yaccarino as the new CEO of Twitter!
Elon Musk the must followed person on Twitter and also owner of twitter upon buying over the company promised to hire someone else as the CEO to run the company.
This is promised that he has now fulfilled, of course after been reminded several times by tweeps after he agreed to follow the result of a twitter poll he conducted
According to the poll, 57.5% thinks he should step down from the role of Twitter CEO.
However, his only condition was that he will do so once he finds someone foolish enough to accept the role. he even got some open applications from some people who were willing to take up the job, like one from Lex Fridman
But nothing has worked out since then until recently when the rumor started to fester that he was in talks with a very important figure at the World Economic Forum.
He however didn’t dispel the rumors but rather issued a tweet that he has appointed a new CEO but omitted the name of the person until today.
Excited to announce that I’ve hired a new CEO for X/Twitter. She will be starting in ~6 weeks! My role will transition to being exec chair & CTO, overseeing product, software & sysops.
Finally in the tweet today he just made the big announcement saying:
I am excited to welcome Linda Yaccarino as the new CEO of Twitter! @LindaYacc
will focus primarily on business operations, while I focus on product design & new technology. Looking forward to working with Linda to transform this platform into X, the everything app.
Many people are currently worried because they are not sure how the bird app is going to take in th hand of Linda Yaccarino been that she is part of the world economic forum and her kind of disposition is different from the free speech and truth mantra that the tweeter lover enjoy on a daily and she was also quoted to have told Elon Musk to reduce his amount of tweets in the past.
What is you take of this fears?
By the way Congrats Linda!
