Twitter CEO Follows SHIB?
As Elon Musk announced that he would be stepping down as Twitter’s CEO, rumors around his potential replacement started swirling. Subsequently, more rumblings about that eventual replacement being Linda Yaccarino, started to make headway.

Yaccarino only followed 1161 Twitter accounts at the time, with one of them being the meme coin. Alternately, speculation started to run rampant on the new CEO’s level of involvement or interest in the digital asset.
Additionally, those rumors persisted when it was revealed that Yaccarino did not follow any other cryptocurrency account. Thus, adding to the idea that she may be more of a Shiba Inu (SHIB) enthusiast, than a cryptocurrency advocate.
Conversely, Yaccarino has not publicly spoken about the project, so her level of interest has not been identified. However, the SHIB Army responded with excitement, knowing that the newest Twitter executive is aware of the meme coin’s ecosystem.
