New Twitter CEO inspired to create a brighter future
Newly appointed Twitter CEO Linda Yaccarino says she has been inspired by owner Elon Musk’s vision to create a brighter future and is excited to help to transform the social media platform.
Her tweet on Saturday is the first time Yaccarino has spoken publicly since the news broke on Thursday that she was in talks to become the next CEO of Twitter.
Musk, who has served as CEO since his $US44 billion buyout of Twitter last October, announced her appointment on Friday.
“I’ve long been inspired by (Musk’s) vision to create a brighter future. I’m excited to help bring this vision to Twitter and transform this business together!” Yaccarino tweeted.
