Remember when Elon Musk announced he was stepping aside as CEO of Twitter? Well, his choice to replace just might have been a good idea after all.
Musk, who has no problem making waves in just about any arena, certainly did just that when he decided to buy out and take over social media platform Twitter, now X (which caused a whole slew of more criticism). Then, he created even more by saying he would put someone else at the helm of his supposedly newly invigorated company.
Conservatives and patriots across the country hoped that he would put someone like him, a self-described purveyor of free speech, in charge. After all, that is one of the main reasons Musk claimed to have wanted the company under his wings in the first place.
But then he announced that former NBC executive and member of the left-leaning World Economic Forum, Linda Yaccarino, would be the new Twitter CEO.
Immediately, our hopes diminished. I mean, how could someone who’s been a part of a progressive propaganda machine possibly turn the social media platform into something that would do both political sides good, or at least not be partial to one side or the other?
However, a simple look at Yaccarino’s phone home page has given some reason to hope that all may not be lost after all.
On Friday, Tom Warren, senior editor of The Verge, shared a photo of Yaccarino holding her unlocked iPhone. As Warren points out, some are important and tell things about the home page.
X (Twitter) CEO Linda Yaccarino at the Code Conference is a truly wild interview. But even more wild is that she has Settings in the iPhone dock and no X app on the home screen 😲 https://t.co/AsRPJ71OVP pic.twitter.com/VmdwvqgelG

For starters, X isn’t even on it, indicating that all the drama sometimes contained on the platform isn’t really her thing.
Secondly, she has YouVersion’s Bible app on the home screen.
Now, of course, this doesn’t necessarily mean that she’s a Christian and, therefore, less likely to be for judgment and censorship just because she doesn’t agree with someone. However, it’s a good sign. And her X history shows she’s liked a number of Christian posts over the years.

Another good sign. So maybe it won’t be that bad after all.
