Why was Emmett Shear hired as CEO of OpenAI?
On November 17, 2023, Sam Altman was abruptly removed as CEO of OpenAI. In a blog post, the company revealed that it “no longer has confidence” in his ability to lead the company.
In the days that followed, attempts were made to bring back the co-founder, but both failed.

Shear clarified his decision to take on the role of CEO of OpenAI in a post on Twitter/X, stating that he felt a “duty to help.”

Ludwig reacts after OpenAI hires Emmett Shear
On November 20, in a post on his X account (formerly known as Twitter), Ludwig made his thoughts and feelings on Emmett Shear’s arrival at OpenAI very clear.

Over the past year, with the growing popularity of streaming services like Kick and YouTube, a growing number of loyal Twitch streamers have gained the ability to express their opinions on the platform as they now have alternative options to consider.
Ludwig left Twitch for YouTube Gaming before Shear’s departure from the Amazon-owned company in March 2023, a decision driven by his desire to spend time with his then-newborn son.
