According to the new CEO, Twitter will accomplish its ambitions by “questioning our assumptions and building something new from the ground up”.
In her email, Yaccarino explained why she joined Twitter. She was inspired by the way Elon Musk transformed industries like space travel and electric cars. Similarly, she sees a need for change in the world of social media. Twitter, in her view, should be a global meeting place where people can freely exchange information and ideas.
The main goal of “Twitter 2.0”, as the new CEO Yaccarino sees it, is for Twitter to become the best source of real-time information in the world. To achieve it, she says that everything is possible if we have a powerful vision and work hard to make it real.
