Elon Musk Introduces New CEO of Twitter – Then Announces a Powerful Role for Himself

Published on

Elon Musk announced on Friday that Linda Yaccarino, a former NBCUniversal advertising executive, will be the new Twitter CEO.

Musk had previously tweeted that the new CEO would succeed him in the coming weeks.

“I am excited to welcome Linda Yaccarino as the new CEO of Twitter!” he wrote on Friday.

Musk said Yaccarino will “focus primarily on business operations.”

He stated that he is not finished with the platform or his vision to transform it into a “everything app,” but will take on a new role.

Musk said he will “focus on product design & new technology.”

“Looking forward to working with Linda to transform this platform into X, the everything app,” he concluded.

The appointment of Yaccarino as the new CEO of Twitter was disclosed by Musk a day prior.

“She will be starting in ~6 weeks!” he tweeted Thursday afternoon. “My role will transition to being exec chair & CTO, overseeing product, software & [systems operators].”

NBCUniversal announced Yaccarino’s resignation from the corporation on Friday morning.

Mike Cavanagh, the president of Comcast, commended Yaccarino for her years of service to the media conglomerate.

“We are grateful for Linda Yaccarino’s leadership of NBCUniversal’s Advertising Sales business, and for the innovative team and platform she has built,” he said in a statement.

Cavanagh concluded, “Linda has made countless contributions to the company during her twelve year tenure, and we wish her the best.”

Yaccarino also released a statement regarding her resignation, but omitted any mention of Twitter.

“It has been an absolute honor to be part of Comcast NBCUniversal and lead the most incredible team,” she said.

“We’ve transformed our company and the entire industry — and I am so proud of what we’ve accomplished together, and grateful to my colleagues and mentors … and the entire NBCU leadership team.”

In addition, Yaccarino is the chairman of the World Economic Forum.
