Twitter CEO Elon Musk has unexpectedly offered former Fox News personality Tucker Carlson the job of CEO of the social media site.
This comes just days after Carlson was fired from her position as Fox News host due to claims of sexism.
Elon Musk, who is famous for his erratic behavior and offbeat business strategies, announced the news on Twitter.
“I’m pleased to welcome Tucker Carlson as Twitter’s new CEO. I look forward to seeing what he does with the platform,” he wrote.
Many have expressed surprise and disbelief about the decision, and others have questioned Musk’s decision and Carlson’s suitability for the position.
After all, Carlson is more well-known for his knowledge of technology or social media than he is for his controversial viewpoints and polarizing statements.
However, in Musk’s opinion, Carlson is the ideal candidate to guide Twitter into the future. “Tucker has a proven track record of connecting and activating people,” he said. “That’s what Twitter needs right now.”
Despite his doubts, Carlsen is taking the situation seriously. In a statement to the media, he expressed his excitement at the opportunity to take up this new project. He announced, “I am honored to be selected as the new CEO of Twitter. I look forward to contributing and bringing my unique perspective to this important position.”
How this strange alliance will progress, only time can tell. But one thing is certain: With Musk and Carlson in charge, Twitter will undoubtedly get even more intriguing.
