The appointment of a new CEO could launch a new chapter for the troubled company, which has recently struggled with sweeping changes to Twitter's policies and frequent outages. As Musk's commitment to open-source transparency and accepting a wide range of viewpoints remains unchanged, the new chief executive will likely improve relationships with advertisers and smooth their fears over content moderation.
Musk has a track record of making splashy announcements and failing to follow through. As Musk has reshaped Twitter's policies to match his whims, speculation on how long his tenure would last and how big of an effect it has on his other companies has only increased. While Twitter may get a new CEO, the biggest question is: How much will change, and how fast, considering he would still have a hands-on role over the social media platform?
There is a 43% chance that Elon Musk will be the richest person in the world by the end of 2025, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
