One of Elon Musk’s First Move on Twitter is Payment for the Blue Checkmark
The Tesla CEO’s $44 billion acquisition of Twitter took a while before finalizing, and now, Musk is finally calling the shots. The billionaire is still reorganizing the new structure with the original Twitter board relieved from their positions.
Recently, a mass exodus has happened within the company as Musk tries to restructure it to help make it profitable. One of his first moves was to charge for the verification check, which some see as controversial.
Former T-Mobile CEO Gave His Thoughts on Running Twitter
It was considered controversial that the checks were originally bestowed by the Twitter team and not bought. This move received mixed reactions, and now, many people are commenting on his leadership.
One of them is from the former T-Mobile CEO who decided to not only give his thoughts but sort of ask for a job. He pitched himself to help run Twitter but was shut down swiftly.
John Legere Said Maybe He Should Run Twitter Saying Musk Could Stop Managing Daily Business and More
According to the story by The Wrap, former T-Mobile CEO John Legere offered himself to run Twitter in place of Elon Musk. He suggested that Musk let someone else manage different aspects of the business while pitching himself.
Legere said Musk could stop running the daily business and “content moderation.” He also said that the support product/technology team should be run by something else.

Within the same tweet, he pitched himself by describing himself as “expensive” and said that “so is what you paid for Twitter.” The former T-Mobile CEO also urged Musk to “please be [a] leadership example of how to tweet.”
A few hours later, Musk replied, “No” to the former T-Mobile CEO’s offer. Another account commented on Legere saying, “You can’t even run Tmobile” with clown emojis.

To this, Legere replied that he ran the company very well in his belief and said it was a successful succession to Mike Sievert, the new T-Mobile CEO, after its merger with Sprint. The CEO then applauded Mike Sievert, saying he ran T-Mobile much better.

Musk Explained Why He Said No
Musk then joined the conversation, saying he likes both Legere and Mike and that he decided to say no because Twitter, at its core, is a software & servers company. He said that Twitter’s technology needs to evolve rapidly, and a technologist must do this.
I like both you and Mike! It’s just that Twitter at its core is a software & servers company. The technology needs to evolve rapidly, which requires a technologist.

After other accounts tried to join the conversation while sharing how bad their T-Mobile experience was, the T-Mobile Help account began replying. To be clear, Elon Musk first explained the reason behind his saying no in a later tweet before saying “No” to the original request.
