This comes a few months after he bought Twitter for $43 Billion. In that time, Twitter has dropped in valuation to hovering around the $20 Billion range.
It has been rumored that Musk would make some form of transition and change, suspected to be a new COO, but this is the first that has been announced he would step down from CEO.
When we find out more on who, we will give more information.
