Elon Musk hired a new Twitter CEO
Just to refresh your memory, back in December, Elon Musk put his job as Chief Twit up to a vote on Twitter, and 57.5% of users told him to resign.
Since then, many have speculated about who will be the next CEO of the embattled social media platform.
Now we have the answer, says the online pubcalition Blockworks. Linda Yaccarino will be the new CEO of Twitter, Musk confirmed Friday on Twitter.
Yaccarino was the chair of global advertising and partnerships at NBCUniversal. She left the company Friday effectively immediately to engage in talks to become the head of Twitter, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday before Musk made the announcement.
Yaccarino, according to Musk, will be starting in the role in about six weeks and will “focus primarily on business operations.” Musk will step in as CTO and will spend his time on “product design” and “new technology.”
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. https://t.co/TiSJtTWuky
