Twitter’s new CEO Linda Yaccarino is all set to take charge as the top boss after Elon Musk officially confirmed her new role. The World Economic Forum (WEF) chair has reportedly departed from NBCUniversal after over a decade of serving as the advertising chief.
Even before Elon Musk officially announced the name of the next Twitter CEO, a WSJ report mentioned that Linda Yaccarino was in talks for the job. While nobody confirmed the development, the report also suggested that Yaccarino resigned from NBCUniversal for this job.
The official tweet from Elon Musk reads, “I am excited to welcome Linda Yaccarino as the new CEO of Twitter! @LindaYacc will focus primarily on business operations, while I focus on product design & new technology. Looking forward to working with Linda to transform this platform into X, the everything app.”
