Before his announcement, Musk was expected to hire Yaccarino as his replacement.
The social media magnate took to Twitter on Thursday saying that he is “[e]xcited 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 [chief technology officer], overseeing product, software & sysops,” Musk added.
Multiple news outlets reported afterwards that Musk was in talks with Linda Yaccarion, NBC Universal’s head of global advertising and partnerships, to replace him as CEO at Twitter.
Yaccarino has been an executive chair at the globalist WEF since January 2019. “Yaccarino is the Chairman of the WEF’s Taskforce on Future of Work and sits on the WEF’s Media, Entertainment, and Culture Industry Governors Steering Committee,” her LinkedIn profile states.
The media executive has been a staunch advocate of the largely ineffective and dangerous COVID-19 shots.
“As 2021–2022 Ad Council Chair, Yaccarino partnered with the business community, the White House, and government agencies to create a COVID-19 vaccination campaign, featuring Pope Francis and reaching over 200 million Americans,” her biography page on Comcast’s website reads.
Furthermore, Yaccarino has pushed discriminatory, equity-based hiring practices, based on “diversity” characteristics such as gender and race.
Comcast stated that “At NBCU, she [Yaccarino] uses the power of media to advance equity and helps to launch DEI [Diversity, Equity, Inclusion]-focused initiatives, including BOLD, a program for employing veterans; #ShesMy, a campaign to uplift women and girls; Scene in Color, a collaboration with Target to elevate emerging BIPOC film creatives; and a partnership with Telemundo to release a Latina-centric storytelling guide.”
Many prominent Twitter users have expressed their concern that Yaccarino could bring back one-sided censorship efforts based on her leftist views.
Musk seemed eager to assure people that Twitter’s approach to freedom of speech will not change under any new CEO. “The commitment to open-source transparency and accepting a wide range of viewpoints remains unchanged,” Musk said in a reply to a tweet concerning the next Twitter CEO.
Political commentator Luke Rudkowski opined to his Twitter following that shadow bans would be returning to the social media giant under Yaccarino’s rule, prompting Musk to respond saying, “That will not be the case.”
Musk took over the social media company only last October.
