Last night, Elon Musk made waves once again on his social media platform. Before many of us settled in for the night, he tweeted a message that hinted at a major change for the Twitter community. After being at the helm of the company for almost seven months and ushering in a slew of changes, from changes in the way Twitter is consumed to personnel changes, it seems Elon Musk has finally found a replacement CEO for Twitter.
In his tweet from last night, Musk announced that he had hired a new CEO for X/Twitter, and that this person will start in approximately six weeks. While there is still speculation about who this mystery woman could be, Musk himself will still stay within X Corp, taking on the role of director of the technology area.
It is important to note that Musk himself admitted that he was looking for someone to take on the role of CEO, as he himself lost a survey that confirmed the majority of users wanted him to relinquish his responsibilities. Finally, the announcement of the new CEO is set to quell some of the uncertainty that has been circulating in the Twitter community.
While some have poked fun at Musk’s tweet, with photoshopped images of him as female CEOs circulating, the announcement signifies a major turning point for the platform. As time passes, we will see what the new CEO brings to the table and how Twitter evolves under her leadership.
