Elon Musk has had a busy year, so much so that he admitted yesterday that he doesn’t have the time to be CEO of Twitter anymore. “I have no plan to do anything else with my time,” he wrote in a tweet. “It’s fun to be CEO but also hard, and it’s not clear there would be value in converting to full-time.”
This is good news for anyone who doesn’t believe they should have been sold on the idea of Elon Musk running our country as president just because he owns Tesla — which is pretty much everyone with half a brain cell left after 2020 ended up being such an unmitigated disaster for Democrats (and humanity). But it does raise some questions about what will happen now that Musk has said goodbye forever. Who will take over? And how will everyone feel about them?
Elon Musk Ready To Hand Over Twitter To An Able Leader
Elon Musk, the man behind Tesla and SpaceX, has said he would step down as CEO of Twitter — if only someone wanted the job.
In a tweet on Wednesday (July 31), Musk wrote that he’s not looking for another full-time job but is “happy to be helping out as an advisor/board member” at Twitter. He also tweeted that he thinks Jack Dorsey should stay on as CEO and lead the company into its next phase of growth.
It’s not clear whether this means that Musk wants to be involved with other companies or just enjoy his time off, but it’s nice to know that even CEOs need breaks sometimes!
As it turns out, Elon Musk does not have time for your social media platform.
The Tesla CEO announced his resignation from Twitter on Thursday, saying that he would step down if someone else wanted the job. His announcement came just days after he had been named CEO of the social media platform by its board of directors.
“I didn’t originally intend to be CEO,” tweeted Musk in response to a question about why he was stepping down. “I got involved because I thought it was important to help with product design.”
