As the search for a new CEO of Twitter continues, rumors are swirling that Steve Davis, CEO of The Boring Company and an active Twitter executive, maybe the one to succeed Elon Musk.
Musk has been serving as the interim CEO of Twitter since November 2021, following the resignation of former CEO Jack Dorsey. However, Musk has made it clear that he has no interest in taking on the role permanently, and Twitter has been searching for a new leader ever since.
While many have speculated that Musk’s successor would come from his inner circle of friends and former colleagues, Davis has emerged as a surprise contender for the position. According to a recent report from Platformer, Davis has been asking Twitter executives about standout employees and general employee performance, suggesting that he is actively preparing to take on the role of CEO.
Davis is no stranger to high-profile leadership roles. As the CEO of The Boring Company, he has overseen the company’s development of tunnel infrastructure for transportation and freight and has been involved in a number of high-profile projects, including the Las Vegas Convention Center Loop.
If Davis does indeed become the next CEO of Twitter, he will be taking on a company that has faced significant challenges in recent years. Twitter has struggled with issues of misinformation and harassment on its platform and has faced criticism for its handling of political content and advertising. However, Davis’s experience in high-pressure leadership roles and his deep knowledge of the company may make him the right person to steer Twitter into a more successful future.
Only time will tell whether Steve Davis will ultimately be named the next CEO of Twitter. But if he does take on the role, it will undoubtedly be a significant moment for the company and its millions of users around the world.
