On Thursday, US billionaire Elon Musk announced the appointment of a new head of the platform, which he said would start working within six weeks. Musk indicated that he would move to the position of “executive chairman of the board” and chief technology officer, provided that his duties would include “oversight of production, systems and software operations.” Musk has been subjected to widespread criticism since he began supervising Twitter, on the grounds that this role distracts him from his other duties in his companies, “Yesla” and “SpaceX”.

On Thursday, Elon Musk announced the appointment of a new president instead of him for the platform Twitter and the startup X that will become its owner.

Musk, through his account on the social networking platform, expressed his enthusiasm “to appoint a new CEO for X / Twitter”, without revealing her name.

He stressed that the new official “will start her duties within about 6 weeks.”

In December, users of the site supported Musk’s stepping down from the presidency of the network, according to the results of the controversial American rich man’s pledge, when it was launched, to abide by its results.

The poll came weeks after he assumed the top job in the group, which he acquired in a deal worth more than $40 billion.

Musk indicated that he would move to the position of “executive chairman of the board” and chief technology officer, provided that his duties would include “oversight of production, systems and software operations.”

Musk has been subjected to widespread criticism since he began supervising Twitter, on the grounds that this role distracts him from his other duties in his companies, “Yesla” and “SpaceX”.

He also raised controversy since his acquisition of the Twitter platform in October, when he laid off the majority of its employees, and allowed the return of extreme right-wing personalities to activate their accounts, in exchange for suspending the participation of other personalities and journalists, and for charging financial fees for services that were free.

More recently, Musk made Twitter part of a startup technology company called “X”, with the platform keeping its name. And he talked about his intention to launch an application called “X”, which mixes different services such as messages and payments.

This week, he announced his intention to launch an encrypted direct messaging service via Twitter, in addition to a voice and video communication service.
