What was the Twitter CEO’s message?
Linda Yaccarino officially started her executive role on June 6, 2023. She has many things to fix and improve in the company, but she enthusiastically took the challenge.
The Verge shared Linda Yaccarino’s Twitter Memo on June 13, 2023, revealing many details about her long-term vision for the company. Her message shows she is willing to continue Elon Musk’s vision of turning the platform into a “global town square.”
Musk used that term to describe Twitter’s future. She also alluded to the tech leader’s famous products and services, such as electric vehicles. You can read her full statement below:
Building Twitter 2.0 Together
People keep asking me: Why Twitter? So, I’ll tell you.
From space exploration to electric vehicles, Elon knew these industries needed transformation, so he did it. More recently, it has become increasingly clear that the global town square needs transformation—to drive civilization forward through the unfiltered exchange of information and open dialogue about the things that matter most to us.
Have you ever been talking with someone particularly insightful, and thought, You’re brilliant—everybody should get the chance to hear this. Or, I’m learning so much from you—can we do this again? Or maybe it’s as simple as. You should have the freedom to speak your mind. We all should.
Enter Twitter 2.0.
Twitter is on a mission to become the world’s most accurate real-time information source and a global town square for communication. We’re on the precipice of making history—and that’s not an empty promise. That’s OUR reality.
When you start by wrapping your arms around this powerful vision, literally everything is possible. You have to genuinely believe—and work hard for that belief.
And in this moment of complete reinvention, we have the opportunity to reach across aisles, create new partnerships, celebrate new voices, and build something together that can change the world. And from what I can tell so far, you’re built for this.
The success of Twitter 2.0 is all of our responsibility.
We need to think big.
We need to transform.
We need to do it all together.
And we can do it all by starting from first principles – questioning our assumptions and building something new from the ground up. It’s rare to have the chance to put a new future into the hands of every person, partner, and creator on the planet.
That’s exactly why I’m here – with all of YOU.
So, let’s dig our heels in (4 inches or flat!) and build Twitter 2.0 together.
What are the Twitter CEO’s latest challenges?
Elon Musk announced his company’s new CEO on May 12, 2023, who turned out to be longtime advertising executive Linda Yaccarino. She was the head of partnerships and advertising for NBCUniversal.
He will continue overseeing Twitter’s product and engineering division, and she will handle everything else. TIME listed some of the biggest challenges she will face as the new social media exec:
- Yaccarino must rebuild the company’s reputation to attract advertisers again. However, she must handle Elon Musk’s unpredictable actions.
- Also, she must find ways for the company to profit. In March 2023, Elon Musk said the company is less than half of what he paid to acquire it.
- The former NBC exec must balance content moderation with free speech. It must offer users freedom while ensuring they will not post content that will repel advertisers.
- Moreover, she must revitalize employee morale after Elon Musk’s actions. In October 2022, he told BBC he downsized from 8,000 workers to 1,500. Also, he ceased remote work and required employees to accept “long hours at high intensity.”
- Yaccarino is also racing against the clock as competitors see Twitter’s decline as an opportunity to grow.
