Before Musk announced Iaccarino as the new CEO, a newspaper reported The Wall Street Journal Last night she was “in talks” to take the job.

In a tweet announcing the position, Musk noted that Iaccarino could help Twitter become the “app for everything.” In recent months, Musk has been focused on finding ways to bring money to the platform, from charging developers to use his API, to removing old verified verification tags, and giving a verification checkmark to anyone who signs up for Twitter Blue in exchange for $8, among many other procedures.
