On Friday Elon Musk officially named Linda Yaccarino the new CEO of Twitter following her exit from NBC Universal.  Yaccarino‘s primary focus will be on business operations while Musk will transition to product design and new technology.  Musk said, “I think people from both sides of the political spectrum will find Linda to be smart, fair and reasonable.”  Some from the left have pointed out that Yaccarino follows conservative accounts like the Babylon Bee and Catturd, while the right is wary of  her position at the World Economic Forum (WEF).  Her LinkedIn profile shows she served as Chairman of the WEF’s Taskforce on Future of Work since 2019, as well as sitting on WEF’s Media, Entertainment, and Culture Industry Governors Steering Committee.
