New Twitter Chief Executive Officer Linda Yaccarino released her first statement on Saturday since landing her new role in the company. She expressed her excitement to assist owner Elon Musk to achieve his vision for the social media platform’s future.
In addition to affirming her commitment to the company, Yaccarino emphasized the importance of receiving feedback from users as a means of constantly improving the platform, calling this approach “vital to that future.”
“I’m here for all of it,” Yaccarino stated. “Let’s keep the conversation going and build Twitter 2.0 together!”
Joining Yaccarino after leaving her role as head of global advertising at NBCUniversal, Yaccarino is expected to work closely with Musk to help him achieve his future vision. Musk will continue to serve as the social media platform’s chief technology officer and executive chairman.
Musk laid off approximately 75% of Twitter’s workforce since acquiring the company in October last year. In addition to bolstering her workforce, Yaccarino will also need to address the advertiser exodus that Twitter has since faced, particularly after the uncertainty caused by Musk’s inconsistent content moderation standards and his own Tweets.
