Musk Hires New Twitter CEO

Twitter Chief Executive Officer, Elon Musk has announced that he has hired a new CEO for the micro-blogging platform.


Musk did not disclose the identity of the new CEO, however, he said it would be a woman, and that she would assume her new role in about 6 weeks.

The billionaire businessman made this known in a tweet on Thursday evening, adding that he will transition to the executive chair position.

“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,” the tweet read.


THE WHISTLER reported back in December 2022, when Musk first asked his followers on Twitter if they wanted him to step down from the CEO position, via a poll. He stated that he would abide by the results of the poll.

It ended with 57% of respondents voting Yes, against 43% who voted No. The poll had more than 17 million votes.

Following the poll results, however, Musk stated that he would only step down as CEO when he found “someone foolish enough to take the job”.

Later on, in February 2023, he stated that he is aiming toward the end of 2023 to appoint a new CEO, adding that he needed to make sure the organization was stable first and financially productive.

“I think I need to stabilize the organization and just make sure it’s in a financially healthy place and that the product roadmap is clearly laid out,” Musk said at the World Government Summit in Dubai.


“I’m guessing probably towards the end of this year should be good timing to find someone else to run the company because I think it should be in a stable position around the end of this year,” he said.
