Elon Musk may be out the door as CEO of Twitter. There’s just one catch.
“I will resign as CEO as soon as I find someone foolish enough to take the job!” the billionaire, who bought Twitter in October for $44 million and has drawn controversy over the takeover itself and company changes he made after assuming the role, tweeted Dec. 20. “After that, I will just run the software & servers teams.”
And one social media pioneer jokingly volunteered as tribute. Tom Anderson, a.k.a. “Tom From MySpace,” responded with a screenshot of his famous MySpace profile pic and bio, which also read, “Last login: 3/11/2006.”
Meanwhile, Snoop Dogg tweeted, “Should I run Twitter?”
Two days earlier, Musk surveyed his social media platform’s users about his role.
“Should I step down as head of Twitter?” the Tesla CEO, who has more than 122.5 million followers, tweeted Dec. 18. “I will abide by the results of this poll.”
