Dionne Warwick has joked that she will be the new CEO of Twitter

Dionne Warwick shares her thoughts on Elon Musk’s latest move as the owner of Twitter.

The business magnate and investor bought Twitter in 2022 for $44 billion. However, Musk’s takeover led to a mass exodus of many celebrities from the social media platform. Making matters worse was the $8 monthly fee for checking blue checks.

But Tesla’s CEO has taken another major step with tongues wagging people, including the “Heartbreaker” singer.

Elon Musk is hiring a female CEO at Twitter

On Thursday, the tech billionaire shocked the Twitterverse when he confirmed he would step down as CEO and be replaced.

“I’m excited to announce that I have a new CEO at X/Twitter,” Musk said in a tweet. “It starts in six weeks! I will be transitioning to an executive chair and CTO overseeing product, software and sysops.”

Fans may remember it on December 18, SpaceX’s CEO and chief engineer conducted a poll on his Twitter account, asking users if he should step down from the company. Unfortunately, the majority of voters (57.5 percent) eventually supported his resignation.

Musk immediately agreed to follow the wishes of the majority. However, he soon shot back at the proposal, saying that he would only pass it on “as soon as I find someone stupid enough to take the job”! This led many to slam him, suggesting he knew buying the social media platform was a problem in the first place.

Finally, in February, the tech guru bowed to pressure from most of the platform’s users and announced that it would find a replacement before the end of the year.

Unlike his previous changes to the app, hiring a female CEO is probably the best decision Musk has made at Twitter since he’s been at the helm. Since taking over, the “X.com” founder has come under fire for policy changes on Twitter that have often been made without a clear rationale and have raised concerns among users.

Many advertisers have reportedly fled the platform due to hateful behavior, mass layoffs, or questions about the future of the company. At the same time, it sought to sell users on its new paid subscription model, favoring only verified subscribers and removing blue checks from celebrities and high-profile figures, which has since backfired.

With a slew of bad decisions, the president of the philanthropic Musk Foundation is looking to do damage control, and his latest move to put a woman in his place seems to be appreciated by all. While Musk did not initially confirm who would take over, sources said NBCUniversal head of advertising Linda Yaccarino was the likely candidate.

As the father of ten did not name the woman who would take on the role at the time, it allowed users to create an inside joke about the footage. Among them was singer Warwick, a Twitter favorite, who teased that she was the hire Musk was talking about as Twitter’s next CEO.

He tweeted: “Excited to officially take on the role of CEO of Twitter.” wrote Warwick. “They’ve been working on it for months.” Many of his 632,800 followers responded to the tweet.

One wrote: “Ha! I wish you weren’t joking, Dionne. It would be a huge improvement over the current management! Another user responded: “I love it! And is he considering the US presidential race because he gets my vote for both? 🥰.” A third person, referring to one of his well-known songs, commented: “I’ll say a little prayer for you 🤭😂.”

Dionne Warwick rivals Chucky for the most popular celebrity on Twitter

The veteran singer is a Twitter legend for a reason. Last Thanksgiving, as reported by The Blast, the exceptional singer got into a hilarious beef with the terrifying doll character Chucky as she reclaimed her throne as the most famous person on Twitter.

The official account of the hideous vintage baby started the beef by calling out the 81-year-old singer in an infamous tweet that read: “We all know I’m the most popular celeb on #twitter but @dionnewarwick is coming in sometime. close the second one #chucky.”

The “Walk On By” hitmaker didn’t take the comment lightly and coolly claps back. He wrote: “Not even 400 likes in 24 hours. Please reconsider.”
