Elon Musk has appointed Linda Yaccarino as the new CEO of Twitter.
Elon Musk has appointed a new CEO of Twitter, little over six months after his contentious purchase of the social media business.
Linda Yaccarino, the former chief of advertising at NBCUniversal, will be in charge of the site’s business operations, according to the billionaire.
He stated that she will begin in six weeks.
Mr. Musk will continue to serve as executive chairman and chief technology officer.
“Looking forward to working with Linda to transform this platform into X, the everything app,” he wrote on Twitter, confirming his decision a day after stoking anticipation by announcing that he had found a new boss but did not divulge their identity.
Mr Musk, who purchased the social networking platform for $44 billion last year, had been under pressure to find someone else to head the company and refocus his attention on his other firms, which include Tesla and SpaceX.
