Elon Musk’s recent announcement of a new CEO for Twitter has caused a stir among conservative Twitter users, who are concerned that the new CEO is a member of the World Economic Forum (WEF). Reports say that the new CEO is Linda Yaccarino, a WEF member. This news has caused many conservative Twitter users to express outrage, with some even making plans to move over to Truth Social, a social media platform that is more aligned with their political views.
Excited 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, overseeing product, software & sysops.

The announcement of the new CEO has also caused some to question Elon Musk’s decision-making. Last November, Musk told a Delaware court that he did not want to be the CEO and said, “I expect to reduce my time at Twitter and find somebody else to run Twitter over time.” More than a month later, he tweeted: “I will resign as CEO as soon as I find someone foolish enough to take the job.”
The news of Linda Yaccarino becoming the new CEO of Twitter has raised eyebrows among conservative Twitter users, who fear that her WEF membership means she will bring a liberal agenda to the platform. This fear is further compounded by Yaccarino’s 2020 interview in which she praised her bosses for taking the right steps to “fight social justice and equality” and commended her company’s progress of hiring “50% of women and 50% people.” These statements have caused many conservative Twitter users to worry that their voices will not be heard under Yaccarino’s leadership.
The news of Linda Yaccarino becoming the new CEO of Twitter has sparked an exodus of conservative Twitter users to Truth Social, a platform that is more aligned with their political views. Many conservative Twitter users have voiced their concerns about Yaccarino’s WEF membership and her past statements on social justice and equality, and have decided to take their business elsewhere.
It remains to be seen whether or not Linda Yaccarino will be a successful CEO for Twitter, but one thing is certain: her appointment has caused an uproar among conservative Twitter users who fear their voices will not be heard under her leadership. The mass exodus of conservative Twitter users to Truth Social is a testament to this fear, and it will be interesting to see how this situation plays out in the coming weeks and months.
