San Francisco, Feb 15 (IANS) Elon Musk on Wednesday said that he has hired a dog to replace him as Twitter CEO.
Musk tweeted a picture of his pet dog “Floki” sitting on the company’s CEO’s chair, with the caption: “The new CEO of Twitter is amazing.”
“So much better than that other guy!” he added.
Musk later said that the dog is “great with numbers!” and “has style.”
Several users expressed their thoughts on Musk’s post. When one user said, “I guess he was the only one crazy enough to take the job.”
Musk replied: “He is perfect for the job.”
“Will Twitter add the option of reporting animal abuse under the new leadership?,” another user asked.
In December last year, Musk had said that he would only run the software and servers teams after he finds “someone foolish enough” to take his place.
He made the statement in a response to a poll he ran, where 57.5 per cent of the respondents said that he should step down as the Twitter CEO.
Meanwhile, he had said, “No one wants a job who can actually keep Twitter alive. There is no successor… The question is not finding a CEO, the question is finding a CEO who can keep Twitter alive.”
