This time, it’s sure. Elon Musk will soon let go of the reins of Twitter , and even before the summer. The American billionaire announced it himself, as usual, by a simple message on the social network, this Thursday evening.
“I am delighted to announce that I have recruited a new CEO for X/Twitter, writes Elon Musk. She will start in about 6 weeks! My role will become that of executive chairman and technical director, overseeing products, software and sysops.
Excited to announce that I’ve hired a new CEO for X/Twitter. She will be starting in ~6 weeks!
My role will transition to being exec chair & CTO, overseeing product, software & sysops.

The name of the future CEO of Twitter is not disclosed. But this simple announcement should already be enough to reure the many users of the blue bird network, as well as certain investors, who were moved by the management methods a little too brutal for their tastes, of the boss of Tesla and Space X.
Musk appoints women to top leadership
After buying Twitter for $44 billion last October; Elon Musk had indeed embarked on a brutal and sometimes radical overhaul of the company, which was structurally in deficit. However, he was careful to indicate that he would only run Twitter for a limited time.
Afterwards, Elon Musk complained about having “too much work” and sleeping at Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters while implementing sweeping changes. In particular, he changed the corporate name of Twitter’s parent company to X Holdings.
This is not the first time that Elon Musk has placed a woman at the head of his companies since the leader of SpaceX is none other than Gwynne Shotwell, who has worked for more than twenty years for the whimsical businessman. Discreet, the president of SpaceX is as calm and reasonable as her boss is unpredictable. It acts as a comp for the space industry. The next leader of Twitter could also have this reuring role with investors.
