Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, has never been one to shy away from sharing his opinions and ideas on social media. And in a recent tweet, he announced that he has found a new CEO for Twitter, but did not reveal the identity of the individual.
Musk tweeted on May 12, 2023, “Just agreed to become CEO of Twitter. New regime starts tomorrow. Let’s go!”
Twitter, the social media giant with over 300 million active users, has been searching for a new CEO since its current CEO, Jack Dorsey, announced he would be stepping down in December 2022. Dorsey, who co-founded Twitter in 2006, had previously served as CEO from 2007 to 2008 and returned to the position in 2015.
Since Dorsey’s announcement, Twitter has been searching for a replacement, and the company’s stock price has increased by more than 40% as investors anticipate a new CEO who will bring fresh ideas and a new vision to the platform.
Elon Musk, who has been a vocal critic of Twitter in the past, may seem like an unlikely choice to lead the company. However, Musk has a strong presence on the platform, with over 70 million followers, and is known for his unconventional approach to business.
While it is unclear whether Musk’s tweet was meant to be taken seriously, it has certainly sparked speculation about who could be the next CEO of Twitter. Some have speculated that Musk could be joking, while others have suggested that he could be serious and that he might be planning to use Twitter to promote his own businesses.
Regardless of Musk’s intentions, the search for a new CEO of Twitter continues. The company has yet to announce who will be taking over from Dorsey, but whoever it is will have big shoes to fill as they take on the challenge of leading one of the world’s most popular social media platforms.
