Earlier this week, Elon Musk took to Twitter to ask whether he should quit as CEO. Of the 17 million people who participated in the survey, more than half (57.5%), were in support of the millionaire CEO resigning. In addition, he said, “I shall follow the verdict of this survey.” Musk first took an oblique approach to the findings, indicating that Twitter polls in the future may be limited to subscribers of Twitter Blue.
Should I step down as head of Twitter? I will abide by the results of this poll.

Twitter’s decision to restrict, and then un-ban, connections to other social media platforms like as Facebook, Instagram, and Mastodon, a fast-growing Twitter competitor that has octupled in size since October, prompted Musk to conduct the survey. Twitter banned numerous reporters last week for writing about Elon Musk’s permanent cancellation of an account that monitored his airplane.
Musk announced his intention to stand down as CEO on Tuesday night (December 20), but only once he has selected a successor. As soon as he found someone “foolish enough to accept the position,” SpaceX‘s creator stated, “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.”
It has been stated that since Musk has taken control of Twitter, there have been widespread layoffs. As a result, Musk ceased enforcing Twitter’s rules on Covid-19 falsehoods and had the remaining staff swear an oath to become “extremely hardcore” in their work. After a flood of parody accounts controlled the service by mimicking famous persons (including Elon), large businesses, and athletes, Twitter debuted and then un-launched the paid verification tool.

At the end of October, Musk purchased Twitter. Musk has made it plain that he wants to change the way Twitter validates users and deals with bots even before he bought the social media platform. He tweeted, “The whole verification process is being revamped right now,” prior to the rollout of the premium verification service. In other words, that didn’t hold up over time.
Musk turned to Twitter earlier this week to ponder his future in the role of CEO. More than half (57.5%!) of the 17 million individuals polled approved of the billionaire CEO’s decision to step down.
