Elon Musk confirms he will step down as CEO of Twitter when he finds 'someone stupid enough' to replace him.
The day before, a poll involving 17.5 million users of the social network Twitter showed that 57.5% of respondents support the idea of Elon Musk's refusal to work as its CEO. Third-party sources said yesterday that the owner of Twitter began to look for a successor even before the survey, and today Musk confirmed his willingness to obey the "voice of the people", but only after the appearance of a new candidate for the post of head of the company.
At the same time, Elon Musk speaks very vaguely about the timing of such changes, explaining that he must first find “someone stupid enough to do this job.” With the appointment of a successor, Musk himself is ready to focus on managing teams of specialists who deal with Twitter software and server infrastructure. In other words, Elon Musk does not even think about the complete removal from the operational management of the company.
To the publication of CNBC about the beginning of the search for a successor even before the poll, Elon Musk cryptically responded with two laughing emoticons. From recent statements by the current head of Twitter, it can be understood that in his view, the successor should be a kind of masochist and be ready for the loss of life savings. He also stressed that the difficulty lies in appointing a person who is able to ensure the viability of the company to the post of general director.
