Elon Musk has found his replacement as CEO of Twitter

Elon Musk has announced plans for a new Twitter CEO, but has not said who he is. in a tweet on Thursday, Musk says that he has “hired a new CEO for X/Twitter” and that he will “start in ~6 weeks.” Instead, Musk will assume the role of CEO and CTO, “overseeing product, software and systems” at Twitter.

However, as Musk has reshaped Twitter’s policy, apparently to coincide with his own whims, speculation has only increased about how long his tenure would last and how big the effect is. taking in his other companies. The Musk era has also included changes that altered Twitter’s relationships with users, public safety officials and others.

Musk anticipated the CEO change with a December poll asking followers if he should “step down as head of Twitter,” vowing to abide by the wishes of the crowd (and, presumably, the bots).

The vote came after Musk implemented a widely criticized policy change that apparently prohibited sharing links to other social networking sites. Musk later clarified, then reversed the rule, promising there would be a vote on major policy changes in the future, not the first time he’s promised that decisions on Twitter would be made by committee. A few minutes later, he tweeted the resignation surveywhich received around 17.5 million responses, with 57.5 percent indicating that he should no longer be CEO of Twitter.

The poll was not the first indication that Musk would eventually find someone else to take over Twitter’s day-to-day operations. In November, while testifying in court about his compensation as Tesla’s CEO, he said, “I hope to reduce my time at Twitter and find someone else to run Twitter over time,” which aligned with previous reports that his role as CEO was introduced. from the beginning as temporary.
