For one day, Twitter had a new CEO and that CEO was none other than rapper and superstar Lil Nas X.
@TwitterMusic shared a nearly three-minute video on Monday morning of Lil Nas X firing Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and all the shenanigans he gets himself into as the new tweeter-in-chief, set to a remix of Lil Nas X’s chart-topping song “Old Town Road.” Within two hours, the video had nearly 900,000 views, 11,000 likes and 1,900 retweets.
In the video, Lil Nas X sits down with Dorsey and the Twitter CEO asks, “So, what are you doing here?” to which Lil Nas X simply replies:“I want to take over your position.”
“You’re walking into a super-stressful job,” Dorsey warns, but gives in after teaching Nas some meditation and telling him he only makes a salary of $1.49 a year.
Lil Nas X jokingly “fires” Dorsey, takes his badge and begins to wreak havoc on the office, wearing a Twitter-branded cowboy hat. His first line of business? He goes into a conference room, throws all the papers on the floor and exclaims: “Edit button!” After firing rooms full of people, he makes some panini sandwiches and takes selfies with the remaining Twitter employees.
