“I will resign as CEO as soon as I find someone foolish enough to take the job! After that, I will just run the software & servers teams,” Musk tweeted.

CNBC reported Tuesday that Musk was looking for a new CEO, but Musk responded to a tweet of the report with laughing emojis.

Musk’s decision to eventually step down isn’t a surprise. Musk told potential investors before purchasing Twitter that he would remain CEO for just a few months after the deal, CNBC reported in May.

While testifying in November, Musk said he expected to “reduce” his time and “find somebody else to run Twitter over time.”
