Musk’s decision to appoint the former Fox News host to the CEO position has left people scratching their heads given Carlson’s lack of experience in the tech industry.
In a surprising turn of events, Twitter chief Elon Musk has offered former Fox News host Tucker Carlson the position of CEO of the social media platform.
This comes just days after Carlson was fired as host on Fox News over allegations of sexism.
Elon Musk, known for his unpredictable behavior and unorthodox approach to business, took to Twitter to make the announcement.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Tucker Carlson as Twitter’s new CEO,” he wrote. “I can’t wait to see what he does with the platform.”
The move has been met with widespread confusion and disbelief, with many questioning Musk’s judgment and Carlson’s qualifications for the role.
After all, Carlson is primarily known for his controversial views and divisive rhetoric, rather than his expertise in technology or social media.
But according to Musk, Carlson is the right person to lead Twitter into the future. “Tucker has a proven track record of hooking up and bugging people,” he explained. “That’s exactly what we need on Twitter right now.”
Despite the skepticism, Carlsen seems to be taking the job seriously. In a statement to the press, he expressed his excitement at the opportunity to accept this new challenge. “I am honored to be selected as the new CEO of Twitter,” he said. “I can’t wait to get started and bring my unique perspective to this important role.”
How this unusual partnership will unfold, only time will tell. But one thing’s for sure: With Musk and Carlson on board, Twitter is bound to become a more interesting place than ever.
