Yaccarino Asserts Twitter’s Position as the Supreme Source of Real-Time Information Accuracy


Twitter’s New CEO, Linda Yaccarino, Aims to Make it the Most Reliable Real-Time Information Source.

Linda Yaccarino, the newly appointed CEO of Twitter, has outlined her vision for “Twitter 2.0” since taking over from Elon Musk a week ago. She is determined to position the company as the world’s most accurate real-time information source. Twitter has faced criticism for its handling of disinformation under Musk’s ownership.

Yaccarino shared her plans in a series of tweets and an email to employees, aligning with Musk’s goal of transforming Twitter into a global town square that drives open dialogue and the unfiltered exchange of information. Ensuring unbiased content in this town square is crucial, according to Ray Wang, CEO of research firm Constellation.

Musk, a staunch advocate of free speech, has been vocal about Twitter’s content moderation policies, advocating for a platform that fosters genuine free speech. However, his moves to reinstate right-wing accounts and relax moderation have led to the departure of advertisers, with December revenue reportedly declining by 40% compared to the previous year.

For advertisers to regain confidence, they need clarity on user content and engagement. Wang believes Yaccarino’s leadership will help strike a balance between Musk’s vision and advertiser expectations, citing mutual respect between the two.

Musk, who remains the executive chairman and chief technology officer, acquired Twitter last year for $44 billion. His decision to step back from day-to-day operations came as he sought to focus on his other ventures, including Tesla and SpaceX. Yaccarino, recognized for her role in guiding NBCUniversal through industry disruptions, started her Twitter tenure earlier than anticipated after the resignation of the head of trust and safety.

As the new CEO, Yaccarino oversees Twitter’s business operations and faces the challenge of monetizing the platform. Analyst Daniel Ives believes she has a solid vision and recognizes the work ahead to turn Twitter into a profitable venture.
