In said message, the new CEO also added. “I’m not as prolific as @elonmusk (yet!), but I’m just as committed to the future of this platform.”
“Your feedback is VITAL to that future. I’m here for all of that,” he said. “Let’s keep the conversation going and build Twitter 2.0 together!”
Yaccarino resigned from his position at NBCUniversal before the official announcement was made. According to The Wall Street Journal , she was very friendly among her employees, but she also had tough negotiating skills.
She “has been inspired for a long time” by the billionaire and interviewed him at a publicity conference last month. Yaccarino applauded Musk’s work ethic, quipping, “Dude, I found my match.”
