Aug 14, 2023 | Political News

In a recent interview with CNBC, Linda Yaccarino, the CEO of the newly rebranded X (formerly Twitter), has come forward to explain the platform’s transformation and its increasingly stringent approach to censorship content it judges to be “lawful but awful.”

Linda Yaccarino, the CEO of Elon Musk’s social media platform X (formerly Twitter) recently spoke to CNBC about the company’s rebranding decision and its new approach to censorship that seems to echo the old Twitter’s primary form of censorship. Yaccarino, attempting to rationalize the shift from the globally recognized Twitter brand, stated, “Elon has been talking about X, the everything app, for a very long time. When I joined the company, the intention was clear: to partner with Elon and reshape Twitter into X, the everything app.”
