Who Could Elon Musk Choose as Twitter’s Next CEO?
Elon posted a poll in response to growing criticism of his Twitter leadership, including the recent suspension of tech journalists. Elon Musk asks if he should step down as CEO. The results of the poll ended on Monday morning. Which showed that 57% of voters supported Musk relinquishing the CEO role.
Despite not making any comments on the poll results, Musk went unusually quiet on Monday without tweeting a thing. However, even if Musk doesn’t act on the results of the poll, he may still be faced with pressure. Because Tesla investors will soon consider appointing someone else to take over.
Since his deal to purchase Twitter closed, Tesla’s stock has declined by 34%. And more than declined by 63% since the beginning of the year. This has caused concern among investors due to Elon Musk’s many competing priorities. Although Elon has mentioned the need to find a successor to manage Tesla, there has been no concrete progress.
In a friendly tweet on Sunday, Elon Musk expressed his thoughts on finding someone to take on the job of keeping Twitter alive. He remarked that “No one wants the job who can actually keep Twitter alive. there is no successor.”
Who might be the new CEO of Twitter
Musk would certainly have no shortage of willing applicants if he were to search for a new Twitter CEO! John Legere (former T-Mobile CEO), Lex Fridman (MIT AI researcher), Snoop Dogg (who could surely get help from his pal and entertainment star Martha Stewart!). And even Tom Anderson (MySpace founder) have all offered to take the reins. Anderson even responded to Musk’s poll with a thinking-face emoji and the comment, “depends on who you get to run it.” Friendly reminder: there are plenty of people who’d love to be Twitter’s CEO!
The Musk lieutenants who have been supporting the company since his takeover are seen as the most likely candidates for a new Twitter CEO. Among the possible contenders are investor Jason Calacanis, Craft Ventures partner David Sacks and Sriram Krishnan. Other candidate Andreessen Horowitz general partner focusing on crypto and formerly leading Twitter’s consumer teams.
Speculations have been made by some Twitter users on who else could lead the social media company, with Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner being one of them who was spotted watching the World Cup with Musk over the weekend. It’s an exciting thought to think of who could be the next leader and we look forward to seeing what the future holds!
