Elon Musk has reportedly hired World Economic Forum (WEF) official Linda Yaccarino as Twitter’s new CEO.
Yaccarino currently serves as NBCUniversal’s head of advertising and is due to take over as Twitter’s chief executive in six weeks’ time.
However, Yaccarino is also the chair of the World Economic Forum’s “Taskforce on Future of Work.”
As Slay News reported earlier, Musk announced Thursday that he has found a new CEO to take his place.
Musk didn’t identify Yaccarino as the new CEO, revealing only that the role was being filled by a woman.
“Excited to announce that I’ve hired a new CEO for X/Twitter,” Musk wrote on Twitter.
“She will be starting in ~6 weeks!
“My role will transition to being exec chair & CTO, overseeing product, software & sysops.”

While Musk stopped short of naming Yaccarino, reports quickly emerged to reveal her identity.
Yaccarino has been at NBCUniversal for more than a decade where her focus has been on finding the best methods for measuring the effectiveness of advertising.
However, it’s Yaccarino’s role at the globalist WEF that is raising concerns for many.
Although Yaccarino would need to step down from NBCUniversal to take the job at Twitter, she would likely retain her role at the WEF.
In Linda Yaccarino, Elon Musk gets a CEO who is a seasoned ad executive who generally shares his political leanings.
But she's also the Chairman of a World Economic Forum task force so she can comfortably liaise with Twitter's current investors and advertisers around the world.

The WEF has been pushing a pro-censorship agenda for some time now.
In fact, the main theme of this year’s WEF annual gathering in Davos, Switzerland was about censoring so-called “misinformation” and “disinformation” online.
During the event, one WEF official even issued a scathing statement about Elon Musk’s free speech agenda and demanded that he start censoring content.
As Slay News reported, EU Commission VP for Values and Transparency Vera Jourova, a WEF speaker, threatened Musk with “sanctions” if he refuses to “behave” by complying with demands to censor free speech on Twitter.
The EU regulator joined former CNN host Brian Stelter for a WEF panel discussion and, with a straight face, blasted those who spread “disinformation.”
“The time of the Wild West is over,” Jourova said while speaking to EuroNews from outside the event.
“We will have the Digital Services Act [DSA].
“We will have the Code of Practice as a part of this legislation.”
“So, after Mr. Musk took over Twitter with his ‘freedom of speech absolutism,’ we are the protectors of freedom of speech as well,” she added.
“But at the same time, we cannot accept, for instance, illegal content online and so on.
“So, our message was clear: we have rules which have to be complied with, otherwise there will be sanctions.”
At the WEF annual meeting, the EU regulator threatens Twitter and Elon Musk with sanctions.
She is very unhappy about unapproved thoughts being expressed freely on Twitter.

Shortly after taking over at Twitter, Musk revealed that remaining CEO permanently was not the best situation for him.
He noted at the time that he would have to start searching for someone who could handle the role long-term.
In December of last year, the tech entrepreneur polled Twitter users to ask whether they believed he should step down as CEO.
“I will abide by the results of this poll,” he promised.
In just 12 hours, 17,502,391 votes poured in, and the majority (57.5%) said that yes, they believed he should step down.
Another 42.5% voted no.
“I will resign as CEO as soon as I find someone foolish enough to take the job!” Musk said in response to the poll.
“After that, I will just run the software & servers teams.”
