Linda Yaccarino, the mystery woman who has been replacing Elon Musk as the new Twitter CEO, is a renowned advertising industry veteran.
Yaccarino is replacing Elon Musk because of how different she is from him. She was an agency veteran in the 1990s and early 2000s and that allowed her to bring a different perspective to the company. She also brings great insights into emerging trends and uses them to create better content for users on Twitter.
Linda Yaccarino is one of those women you would see sitting in front of a conference room wearing an orange outfit with black sunglasses on top of her head, looking like she does not have time for anything or anyone.
