Elon Musk Claims That He Has Picked A New Twitter CEO To Try And Fix The Disaster That He Created

Last night this Tweet got a lot of people’s attention:

Digging around to find out who she was, I found this:

NBCUniversal executive Linda Yaccarino is in talks to become Twitter’s chief executive officer, the Wall Street Journal reported, following owner Elon Musk’s announcement that he had found a new leader for the social network and will shift into the role of chief technologist.

In a tweet on Thursday, Musk said the company’s new CEO will start in about six weeks, without naming the individual. Yaccarino, who is chairman of global advertising and partnerships at NBCUniversal Media, didn’t respond to an email seeking comment, and a representative for NBCUniversal said she was in rehearsals for the company’s upfront presentation to advertisers next week.

This is clearly an attempt to placate advertisers and try to bring them back to the platform as Yaccarino has the connections to try and right that ship. I say “try” because I am not sure that she would be able to actually get things back on course. I say that because there’s the fact that Elon is hanging around as CTO. And Elon owns the place. So I don’t see a scenario where he stays in his lane and takes direction from Yaccarino. Given that fact, if I would offer her any advice, I would say run as far away from Twitter as you possibly can. Working with this clown isn’t worth it. That of course assumes that Yaccarino actually took the job. Nothing that I found online suggests that she has. But given how much of a circus that Twitter is, nothing would surprise me at this point.
