Elon Musk has been on the lookout for a replacement CEO after buying Twitter.

And he finally named one.

Now Musk’s new hand-picked CEO just broke her silence.

Elon Musk has been hard at work trying to reform Twitter.

He purchased the social media giant for $44 billion and took the company private with the intention of reinstituting free speech as a guiding principle on the platform.

Though Twitter has not been perfect under Musk, it has been better than it was under the old regime, which was seemingly shot through with feds.

Musk trimmed much of the bloat from the company, which forced him to work long days and sleep at the office.

That’s why Musk named Linda Yaccarino as the new CEO to handle the day-to-day while he can focus on other issues, including running his other companies.

Musk wrote on Twitter, “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…I am excited to welcome Linda Yaccarino as the new CEO of Twitter! [Linda] 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.”

Yaccarino responds after concern about World Economic Forum ties

Yaccarino responded to Musk, “Thank you, Elon! I’ve long been inspired by your vision to create a brighter future. I’m excited to help bring this vision to Twitter and transform this business together! I see I have some new followers…I’m not as prolific as Elon (yet!), but I’m just as committed to the future of this platform. Your feedback is VITAL to that future. I’m here for all of it. Let’s keep the conversation going and build Twitter 2.0 together!”

Yaccarino’s hire seemed to rankle people on both sides of the aisle.

People on the Right were particularly skeptical because of her ties to the World Economic Forum and her boasting about social justice initiatives while at NBC Universal.

Some have argued that Musk hired Yaccarino as a sop to encourage advertisers to come back to the platform.

Nevertheless, it seems as though Musk made the move to boost marketing for the platform.

Musk is determined to make Twitter profitable, which it was not.

Tucker Carlson recently announced that he would be taking his show to Twitter in light of Fox News hastily yanking him off the air.

Musk might kill the platform for good if he backs off his pledge to allow free speech on Twitter.
