Quote from Elon Musk, CEO of Twitter

he said to himself pleased to do this advertisement.

The billionaire, who is also the owner of Tesla, in particular, reiterated for about six months that he was looking for someone to direct Twitter’s destinies.

In mid-November, just weeks after he bought the social media platform for US$44 billion, he told a Delaware court that he did not want to be CEO from any business. He said in his testimony: I expect to reduce my time on Twitter and eventually find someone else to take care of.

In December he wrote on Twitter: I will step down as CEO as soon as I find someone crazy enough to fill it..

The billionaire made the commitment when millions of Twitter users asked him to opt out in favor of a survey he had launched himself on the platform. About 17 million of them spoke, of whom 57% supported his departure. Mr. Musk has promised to respect the findings of this investigation.
