After asking his followers if he should step down as Twitter’s CEO, Elon Musk heard from a volunteer for his job that was admittedly a joke. But it led to Musk unloading about the intense pressure of running the social media service.
“You must like pain a lot,” Musk responded to the volunteer. “One catch: you have to invest your life savings in Twitter and it has been in the fast lane to bankruptcy since May. Still want the job?”
The pseudo job proposal came from Lex Fridman, a research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and host of his own podcast. He introduced the idea of becoming Twitter’s CEO as a “fun suggestion.”
