There was a poll Musk posted on Twitter a few days ago asking the platform’s users whether or not they thought Musk should stay on as CEO. The majority of voters voted in favor of him stepping down from his position more than 57% of the time.
Musk has finally confirmed that he will step down as chief executive of Twitter as soon as a suitable replacement has been identified after keeping silent for quite some time.
As the debate surrounding Twitter has been raging for the past few weeks, Musk has received a clear indication from Twitter users that the majority of them would like to see him step down from the position after weeks of controversy surrounding the social networking site.
According to the results of the poll titled, “Should I step down as the head of Twitter?”, 57.5% of the 17.5 million people who took part in it answered in the affirmative.
After months of lawsuits and the near miss of a full-blown trial, Musk finally seized control of Twitter at the end of October. After closing the $44 billion deal, Musk entered Twitter headquarters with a sink in his hands.
The ensuing two months have seen mass layoffs, rows over blue check marks, Donald Trump’s account restored, several journalists banned, the prohibition of promoting other social media outlets, and Twitter hemorrhaging millions of dollars per day.
