Who is the first female CEO of Twitter?

In an exciting revelation via a recent tweet, Elon Musk, the renowned entrepreneur, disclosed that he has chosen Twitter’s first woman Chief Executive Officer (CEO), who is set to assume the position in approximately six weeks.

While the official identity of the new CEO has not been unveiled, reports indicate that Linda Yaccarino, the Head of Advertising at NBCUniversal, is the frontrunner to lead Twitter. This transition comes as Musk takes on the roles of Executive Chairman and Chief Technology Officer (CTO).

Elon Musk’s tweet read, “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.”

Under this new arrangement, Musk will oversee vital areas such as product development, software operations, and systems operations. It is important to note that Musk initially became Twitter’s CEO after acquiring the company at a valuation of $44 billion.

Back in December, Musk had expressed his intention to step down from the CEO position once he found the right candidate willing to take on the role. This decision aligns with his long-term vision for the company’s growth and success.

According to The Wall Street Journal, negotiations between Musk and Linda Yaccarino are underway for her appointment as the new CEO. Silicon Valley insiders have also indicated that Yaccarino is the likely choice for the coveted position.

Interestingly, in December of last year, Elon Musk conducted a Twitter poll where 57.5% of the respondents voted in favor of him stepping down as the CEO of the popular microblogging platform.

Musk’s initial weeks as Twitter’s owner in October 2022 were marked by significant upheaval. He swiftly removed Parag Agrawal, the former CEO, along with other senior executives. In November, he further implemented a substantial downsizing strategy, resulting in the termination of half of the company’s employees.

As the transition to a new CEO approaches, the Twitter community eagerly anticipates the positive changes and strategic direction that the first woman CEO will bring to the social media platform. Elon Musk’s continued involvement as Executive Chairman and CTO promises an exciting evolution for Twitter’s product offerings, software development, and operational systems.
