Elon Musk is set to step down as the CEO of Twitter after promising to abide by the results of a poll asking if he should give up his position.
- Twitter CEO Elon Musk is expected to give up his role after posting a poll late Sunday night asking if he should step down as head of the social media company.
- “Should I step down as head of Twitter?” Musk asked. “I will abide by the results of this poll.”
- The final result revealed that a 57.5% to 42.5% majority wanted him to leave his position.
- “The question is not finding a CEO, the question is finding a CEO who can keep Twitter alive,” Musk tweeted after.
- Some speculated that Musk may already have a new CEO in mind, a pick that would terrify liberals more than him being in charge.
- “This leads me to believe you have someone in mind that the lefties will hate even more,” one user said in response to Musk’s tweets.
