Twitter owner Elon Musk, who has been acting CEO of the social media platform since his purchase was completed, announced on Thursday that he had found a new CEO.

Musk made the announcement, appropriately, via Twitter — and while he did not reveal the name of his new CEO, he did reveal that he had hired a woman for the job and that she would be starting in a matter of just weeks.

“Excited to announce that I’ve hired a new CEO for X/Twitter. She will be starting in ~6 weeks! My role will transition to being exec chair & CTO, overseeing product, software & sysops,” Musk tweeted.

Musk said shortly after taking over at Twitter that perhaps remaining CEO permanently was not the best situation for him, noting at the time that he would have to start searching for someone who could handle the role.

The billionaire entrepreneur polled users on the social media site in December of last year, asking whether they believed he should step down as CEO — and he promised, “I will abide by the results of this poll.”

In just 12 hours, 17,502,391 votes poured in, and the majority (57.5%) said that yes, they believed he should step down. Another 42.5% voted no.

“I will resign as CEO as soon as I find someone foolish enough to take the job! After that, I will just run the software & servers teams,” he tweeted once the poll results were in.
