Elon Musk posts poll asking if he should step down as head of Twitter, says will abide by the results
Elon Musk, who has been under fire for recent policy changes at Twitter Inc., is asking people if he ought to resign as the company’s CEO.
14 million votes have been cast with around four hours to go, and 57 per cent of participants have chosen yes. He promised in a tweet on Sunday that he would follow the poll’s results. The billionaire is also the CEO of Tesla Inc.
In the US, ‘VOTE YES’ and ‘CEO of Twitter’ were three of the top trending items from the previous night.
Elon Musk, the company’s new owner and CEO, issued a survey asking Twitter users if they thought he should step down as CEO.

Although Musk stated he would follow the poll’s results, it is uncertain whether or not he will actually do so. The vote is scheduled to end early on Monday morning.
In court, in November, Musk stated that he is expecting to limit his time at Twitter and find somebody else to operate Twitter over time. On the other hand, he said in a tweet from Sunday that he had no potential successor at the social media giant.
Finding a CEO is not the issue; the issue is finding a CEO who can keep Twitter operational.
Twitter polls are informal straw polls; they cannot be compared to formal public opinion polling. A answer to a Twitter poll may potentially be registered by malicious bots or fraudulent accounts.
After the Chief Twit (as he has dubbed himself) abruptly changed Twitter’s policies last week, there was an online uproar that led to Musk’s Sunday poll.
For instance, on Sunday Twitter unveiled a new social media platform promotion strategy that forbade users from posting links to certain of their other social media profiles. Paul Graham, the founder of Y Combinator, and other ardent supporters of Elon Musk voiced their outrage at the policy, leading Musk to retract his statement and issue an apology.
