Elon Musk tweeted Tuesday that he will step down as CEO of Twitter once he “finds someone foolish enough to take the job.”
Running Twitter has become one of the most high-profile and heavily scrutinized jobs in the world.
Musk wrote that he will continue to “run the software & servers teams” at the social media giant he recently bought for $44 billion.
- His resignation announcement came as belated acceptance of the results of a Twitter poll he posted Sunday, amid outcry over his suspension of several journalists from the platform.
Former President Donald Trump praised Musk during an interview with One America News Network on Tuesday and offered advice on choosing a successor.
- “You need somebody that has a lot of different hats. That’s not an easy thing to find in that world. You need technology. You need politics. You need sort of everything,” Trump told OANN’s Chanel Rion.
- “I think [Musk] probably wanted to step down.”
