Billionaire Twitter owner, Elon Musk, has announced ex-NBCU leader, Linda Yaccarino, as the next CEO of Twitter.
The founder, CEO and chief engineer of SpaceX confirmed this on his official Twitter handle on Friday.
Yaccarino had announced earlier on Friday morning that she was leaving her role as Chariman of Global Advertising & Partnerships at NBCU.
Her resignation had already fueled suspicion as to where she’ll be heading to as it coincided with the time Musk said he’s ended his search for a new CEO.
The 51-year-old confirmed Yaccarino’s new role in a tweet this morning, a day after he announced that he had completed his search for a new CEO.
Musk said he will stay on as chairman and “CTO, overseeing product, software & sysops.”
