BREAKING: Elon Musk to Appoint Donald Trump Jr. as New Twitter CEO After Stepping Down
Is this the right move?
Austin, TX — Twitter CEO Elon Musk has announced his successor as the head of the social media company after a poll revealed that more users would like him to step down from managing the day-to-day operations of the company. After cautioning users to “be careful what you wish for,” Musk has decided to hand the reins to Donald Trump Jr. after he vacates his position.
“So y’all don’t want me running Twitter anymore? Fine! Let’s see how you deal with THIS!” he said during a Twitter Spaces session.
Twitter has not yet set a date for Trump’s takeover, but the son of former President Donald Trump seems ready and willing to run the company. “Oh, it’s gonna be LIT,” he told The Smattering. “Leftists had their collective panties in a bunch just because Elon wanted to create a level playing field for all political views. But now, I’m gonna go buck wild on this bird app.”
He added: “Think of Fox News, Newsmax, and One America News Network as a social media site. That’s what you will be getting with the new Twitter.”
Musk is leaving all major hiring decisions to Trump, who indicated he will install conservative commentator Sebastian Gorka and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell in key positions at the top echelons of Twitter’s leadership.
“We’re also in talks with Kanye West to head up our content moderation team,” Trump said. “They want to bitch and moan about hate speech? I’ll show ‘em hate speech!”
Musk will still retain ownership of the company, but is expected to focus on his other companies. “I just want to build electric cars and work on implanting microchips in people’s brains. I’ll leave the social media stuff to other folks,” he said. “Have fun!”
