Musk claims to have hired a CEO for Twitter

The only stabilization I see in Twitter’s future is titled “Chapter 13.”

No. It's noble of you, Kif.

i.e., what he thinks are the important parts of twitter because he doesn’t understand at a very basic level what twitter’s business is.

It’s as though he sees himself as the techie in a stock photo, or he thinks that we do, or both:


Well…

It’s Elizabeth Holmes isn’t it?

My money’s on Devin Nunes. He has the requisite experience of running a Nazi bar social media platform.

Of course, Nunes may be still contractually bound to Truth Social. But I hear Tucker Carlson recently became available …

I was kinda hoping for Sarah Palin…

Is it still the poor schmuck from The Boring Company Musk’s been teeing up as fall guy/scapegoat when Twitter goes belly-up? Or did that guy wise up and decide that running one ridiculous Musk venture is enough.

I’m sure it’s nobody we’ve heard of. Not someone who would risk stealing the spotlight from him, and someone he would perceive as being indebted to him for a “big break”.

It’s Santos, isn’t it?

She will be starting in ~6 weeks!

Of course, we can’t believe a word he says, though.

I mean - no doubt, but what fun is it to speculate about that?

Guess from…wait for it…Twitter…that I’m not sure if it’s supposed to be a joke or not:

Carly Fiorina

I’m going for both. Elno sees himself as that skilled hardcore techie, we see him as that hardcore techie holding the hot end of the soldering iron. :rofl:

Given the unique skill sets required to run Twitter, I’m going with either of Kellyanne Conway or Liz Truss.

I d like to see the position filled on a rotating basis the way late night talk shows do when the host
Is away. There’s just so many good choices. Sarah Palin? Devin Numes? * chef’s kiss * Either that or a half dozen CEOs could exec simultaneously and be revealed one by one, masked singer style.

Excited to announce that I’ve hired a new CEO for X/Twitter. She will be starting in ~6 weeks!

Oh great, so now Elmo can tell his rabid Muskovites that, “A gosh darn woman ran Twitter in to the ground! It would never have happened if I’d been at the wheel!”

That may in fact be very close to the way things turn out.

No, Musk’s going to take a page from Trump’s book and play Twitter Apprentice! Whichever contestant disappoints him the most each week (by calling out that reality doesn’t work the way Musk wants it to) “flies away” until the most sycophantic candidate is the only one left standing.
