Is Mr. Beast the 'Twitter Super Official CEO' now?

Elon Musk vowed to step down as the CEO of Twitter once he found the right person for the job.

Mr. Beast is a man of great ambition. Now, after figuring out and dominating YouTube as the top solo content creator on the platform, the 24-year-old has his sights set on Twitter.

When it comes to making viral YouTube videos, nobody does it quite like Mr. Beast.

The uber-popular American YouTuber, whose real name is Jimmy Donaldson, recently changed his Twitter bio, which now reads as "Twitter Super Official CEO." This is igniting rumors among users that he will take over as the platform's new CEO.

Although Twitter has not officially confirmed this, it is hardly surprising given Elon Musk's exchange with MrBeast just one month ago. When MrBeast questioned Musk about becoming the next CEO of Twitter, Musk responded, "It's not out of the question."

On December 19, the Twitter billionaire conducted a poll asking users if he should step down as the CEO of the platform, promising to abide by the results of the poll. Although it was a close call, 57% of the voters called for the resignation of Elon Musk, and as promised, he vowed to resign as soon as he had found "someone foolish enough to take the job!"

Since then, Musk has been actively looking for his replacement, with reports suggesting that a list of suitable candidates has been drawn up for him. Experts predict Elon Musk's ally Sriram Krishnan is the most likely person to get the job, with odds of 3-to-1. David Sacks is a close second, with odds of 5-to-1.

It's worth noting that MrBeast currently owns and operates a number of profitable businesses, including MrBeast Burger. The 2020-founded virtual restaurant broke the record for the most burgers sold in a single day by a single establishment last year when it established its first physical location. If we take into account his popularity in the world of content creators and couple that with his entrepreneurial success, we can understand why Musk would consider him to be the best person to chart the way forward for his company.

It'll be interesting to see if MrBeast really is the new CEO of Twitter.

It remains to be seen, however, whether investors and the general public will accept him as the next CEO of the billion-dollar company, if it proves to be true.
