A tweet from Leonardo DiCarpio to his followers was widely reported on Twitter as a statement about the impending retirement of Twitter’s CEO.
The tweet was posted on September 17, 2017 and it read: “I’m not retiring.
I’m not going anywhere.
I’ve been tweeting for over 30 years.
I think I’ve already said enough.”
DiCapio, however, didn’t give up on Twitter.
On September 20, he tweeted again: “Thank you for all the love and support over the last couple of years.
It’s a privilege to have the platform at my fingertips.”
He followed this up on September 21, 2017 by tweeting: “One of the things I love most about this company is the way it encourages innovation and discovery.”
A spokesperson for Twitter confirmed to Football Itama that DiCaputo’s tweet is genuine.
“He was referring to the fact that Twitter is moving towards a public-facing structure where we would be able to share more about our users, which will be a big part of the transition to a publicly-owned platform,” a spokesperson told Football Itale.
“However, the tweet is not a statement or confirmation that DiCapio is going to stop tweeting on the platform.”
