New Twitter CEO Follows Shiba Inu. Is Linda Yaccarino a SHIB Holder?

Twitter, the leading messaging app, has a new chief executive officer that will start work by June end, according to former CEO Elon Musk. Speculations have it that the new Twitter CEO may be a Shiba Inu proponent or SHIB holder.

Linda Yaccarino, the Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF) was announced by Elon Musk as the new CEO of Twitter in a Friday tweet.

This disclosure was made less than 24 hours after Musk noted that he will be retiring from the CEO position to focus on overseeing products, software, and system operations. Notably, Musk is now functioning as Twitter’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and Executive Chairman.

In response, Yaccarino thanked Musk noting that she is determined to help transform Twitter in an acceptance post shared on Sunday.

Is Yaccarino a SHIB Holder?

The Shiba Inu community has particularly expressed great excitement over this development, given the perceived affinity between the new Twitter CEO and the canine-themed cryptocurrency. 

As disclosed by a community-driven account SHIB BPP on Friday, Yaccarino is following the official Shiba Inu (SHIB) Twitter account. “Breaking: Twitter’s new CEO follows the SHIB token account and is the Executive Chair for WEF,” the tweet read. 

Notably, the new Twitter CEO who professed her commitment to building Twitter 2.0 follows only 1,161 accounts on Twitter. The official Shiba Inu handle (Shibtoken), the official Dogecoin account, Billy Markus, one of the founders of DOGE, and two more accounts affiliated with Dogecoin are among the accounts she follows.

While there is no trace of support for SHIB by Yaccarino or any proof that she holds SHIB, she is perceived to be a memecoin proponent given that she follows no other crypto projects or crypto entrepreneurs on the blue app. This is unlike Musk who continues to express public support for the largest meme token DOGE and even hinted at a future integration of the crypto asset as a payment method on Twitter.
