Snippet: Watch Linda Yaccarino’s Wild Interview at the Code Conference ☇

Shared on September 28, 2023

Jacob Kastrenakes for The Verge:

On Wednesday evening, X CEO Linda Yaccarino appeared onstage at the Code Conference with frustration and protest. “I think many people in this room were not fully prepared for me to still come out on the stage,” she told interviewer Julia Boorstin, senior media and tech correspondent at CNBC.

Yaccarino sounded rattled. She’d found out earlier in the day that Kara Swisher, a Code Conference co-founder, had booked a surprise guest to appear an hour before her: Yoel Roth, Twitter’s former head of trust and safety. He has been an outspoken critic of the direction Elon Musk has taken the site.

This is giving “I didn’t do the reading assignment and we’re discussing it in class today” vibes.
