Elon Musk says he will step down as CEO of Twitter. Yes, again. At the end of December, Musk announced that he would be stepping down as CEO of the social network (which seems like a TV series at this point), and that he would make way for someone else “who was dumb enough” to take it over. A change that, to date, and after having carried out several somewhat questionable changes, has not yet occurred.
However, maybe this time we will see the light at the end of the tunnel. Not even 3 months after he announced his willingness to step aside as CEO, this week, Musk reiterated at the World Government Summit in Dubai that he will be leaving his position at the social network and says it would be “a good time” to look for the person to replace him.
When will it do so? By the end of 2023 (yes, we still have Elon for a while). Twitter’s current CEO believes that, by the end of the year, the platform will have reached a stable position within the social media world. “I think by the end of this year would be a good time to find someone else to run the company, because I think it should be in a stable position by the end of this year,” he said.
Musk also made a “jocular” post on Twitter where his dog Floki adopts the position of CEO of the social network, thus letting it be known that his idea is to leave the position. “He’s good with numbers,” says the CEO who has not been paying rent for months for several of Twitter’s offices and who carried out a series of massive layoffs of his staff with the sole purpose of “cutting costs”.
Will he finally make the move at the end of the year or will he “flee forward” and stay in charge if Twitter’s position is not good enough? We’ll have to see.
