Elon Musk is already thinking about the post-Twitter era. This is in any case what the current CEO of the platform said during a video conference on the sidelines of the World Goverment Summit in Dubai this week. According to him, "the right time" to be replaced at the head of the company will quickly arrive: "By the end of the year".

Before he gets there, however, the businessman has a goal. "I have to stabilize the organization and make sure it's financially sustainable," he added, as Bloomberg reports. His plan is to achieve this within the next 10 months.

If he had already said that he did not intend to remain CEO of the microblogging company for long, this is the first time that Elon Musk gives a concrete date of his departure. Since his arrival at the head of Twitter last October, he has been at the heart of many controversies. Bravache, he ended up organizing a poll on the site to find out what the tweeters thought. Nearly 60% asked him to step down.

In addition, his other companies, including Tesla, seem unhappy with his obsession with trying to write cool punchlines in less than 140 signs, which would tend to divert him from the essential, that is to say business. It must be said that the billionaire's ego looks as inflated as his fortune.

According to the specialized site Platformer, which spoke with several close to Twitter who provided testimonies and documents, Elon Musk would have mandated around 80 engineers to modify the algorithm so that his tweets are the most viewed on the platform.
