Dionne Warwick joked that she will be the new CEO of Twitter

Dionne Warwick shares her thoughts on Elon Musk’s recent move to owning Twitter.

The business tycoon and investor acquired Twitter in 2022 for $44 billion. However, Musk’s takeover prompted a massive flight by many celebrities from the social media platform. The situation was made worse by the $8 monthly fee for blue check verification.

However, the Tesla CEO has made another significant move that has people, including the “Heartbreaker” singer, wagging their tongues.

Elon Musk is hiring a CEO for Twitter

On Thursday, the tech billionaire shocked Twitter by confirming he was stepping down as CEO and looking for a replacement.

“I am pleased to announce that I have a new CEO for X/Twitter,” Musk said in a tweet. “She’ll start in about six weeks! I will transition to CEO and CTO and oversee the products, software and sysops.”

Fans may remember On Dec. 18, SpaceX’s CEO and chief engineer conducted a poll on his own Twitter account, asking users if he should step down as head of the company. unfortunately, The majority of voters (57.5 percent) ultimately voted in favor of his resignation.

Musk immediately agreed that he would follow the wishes of the majority. However, he soon resisted the suggestion, saying he would only give up “once I find someone stupid enough to take the job!” This prompted many to condemn him, suggesting he knew that buying the social media platform was a problem in the first place.

Finally, in February, the tech guru gave in to pressure from most of the platform’s users and announced that it would find a replacement before the end of the year.

Unlike his previous changes to the app, hiring a female CEO is probably the best decision Musk has made on Twitter since he’s at the helm. The X.com founder has been criticized for a series of policy changes at Twitter since his acquisition, often without clear justification and raising concerns among users.

Many advertisers reportedly left the platform over concerns about hateful behavior, mass layoffs, or questions about the company’s future. At the same time, he’s pushing to sell users the new paid subscription model, favoring only verified subscribers and getting rid of the blue check from celebrities and notables — a move that has since backfired.

In the face of a spate of bad decisions, the president of the philanthropic Musk Foundation has tried to do some damage control, and his latest move to appoint a woman to succeed him seems universally appreciated. Although Musk did not initially confirm who would succeed him, sources claimed NBCUniversal advertising executive Linda Yaccarino was the likely candidate.

Since the father-of-ten didn’t reveal the name of the woman who would be taking on the role at the time, it allowed users to invent an inside joke about the hiring.

She tweeted, “I’m excited to officially take on the role of CEO of Twitter.” wrote Warwick. “This has been months in the works.” Many of her 632.8k followers responded to the tweet.

And will you think about the US presidential race because you get my vote for both? 🥰.” A third person, referring to one of her well-known songs, remarked: “I’ll say a little prayer for you 🤭😂.”
