On Thursday, Twitter CEO Elon Musk announced he had found a new chief executive for Twitter, stopping short of naming the person while reports say the new CEO is World Economic Forum member (WEF) Linda Yaccarino.
Musk said in a tweet:
“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.”
However, Musk’s tweet caused outrage among Twitter users, who feared his new CEO was WEF member Linda Yaccarino.
Twitter user, I Meme Therefore I Am, wrote:
“Meet Linda Yaccarino, the new CEO of Twitter.In a 2020 interview, Yaccarino praised Jeff Shell and Brian Roberts, her bosses, for taking the right steps to “fight social justice and equality.” Also, Yaccarino commended her company’s progress of hiring “50% of women and 50% people.”
The official ‘Died Suddenly’ account wrote:
“This is reportedly the new Twitter CEO. Pro-mask, pro-vax, and a participant in The World Economic Forum.”
“Under her Twitter, The #DiedSuddenly film would have never been allowed to see the light of day. @elonmusk, if this is true- please reconsider this decision.”
Meanwhile, other Twitter users began making plans to move over to Truth Social following the news.
Twitter user Liz Churchill wrote:
“In light of the new Twitter CEO being a member of the World Economic Forum…I just created a Truth Social Account…I suggest you do the same.”
Other users had the same sentiment:
Last November, Musk told a Delaware court that he did not want to be the CEO, saying, “I expect to reduce my time at Twitter and find somebody else to run Twitter over time.”
More than a month later, he tweeted:
“I will resign as CEO as soon as I find someone foolish enough to take the job.”
