In a vote held on Twitter, the same platform that Elon Musk had established and pledged to uphold, millions of people petitioned the billionaire to resign as Twitter’s CEO. Although the voting concluded on Monday, it was still unclear whether or not the social media platform will be led by a new person. Under Musk’s reign, the site has become more chaotic and confused as rules are announced, then retracted, or changed.
Musk, CEO of Tesla and founder of the company, is worth an estimated $2.1 billion. He kicked off the vote by attending Sunday’s World Cup final in Qatar. Once it finally shut down 12 hours later, neither Twitter nor Musk—who may have been in the middle of a journey back to the US by then—made any kind of statement right away.
Should I step down as head of Twitter? I will abide by the results of this poll.

Musk conducted a Twitter poll asking if he should resign as CEO, and more than half of the 17.5 million voters said he should. Musk has conducted many unscientific polls on major topics affecting the social media site, such as whether to restore journalists he had removed from Twitter, a move that was widely criticized both inside and beyond the media.
Since Musk purchased Twitter at the end of October for $US44 billion, the future of the business may rest in the hands of its users, and the polls have only contributed to the rising feeling of unrest on the platform.
Users who had previously been banned for racist or poisonous content or for spreading disinformation are among those who have lately been let back into the network thanks to Musk.
Millions of Twitter users petitioned Elon Musk, Twitter’s billionaire founder and CEO, to resign in a vote conducted on Twitter, the same platform that Musk had founded and sworn to maintain. While voting ended on Monday, it was still unclear whether a new leader would be selected for the social media network. The site has gotten more disorganized and difficult to use since Musk took over, with regulations being introduced, rescinded, or amended on a regular basis.
