Elon Musk is Asking Twitter by Launching a Poll Questioning if He Should Step Down from Twitter
December 18 (Reuters) – On Sunday, Elon Musk decided whether to keep in charge of the social media platform by asking Twitter users, “Should I quit as the head of Twitter?”
According to a published post by Reuters, Elon Musk, the Chief Executive Officer of Twitter, added, “I’ll act following the results of this poll.” In another policy change, Twitter announced that users will no longer be able to link their Facebook, Instagram, Mastodon, and other online platforms.
Elon Musk launched a poll on Sunday asking: “Should I step down as head of Twitter?”
But the action was soon met with so much criticism, including from a former advocate for Twitter’s new billionaire, that Musk vowed to make no more major policy changes without users’ online votes. “Sorry, it won’t happen again,” Musk tweeted before establishing a new 12-hour poll asking whether he should resign.
According to Musk, he promised to let users determine his future role at Twitter through an unscientific online poll that seemed to come out of nowhere on Sunday. However, in November, Elon Musk promised that a restructuring would be coming.
On Sunday, in a public joke with his Twitter followers, Musk expressed pessimism about the possibilities for a new CEO, stating that the person should be “extremely like pain” to lead a company “on a rapid path to bankruptcy.” Musk also tweeted, “Nobody wants a job that can keep Twitter active. No successor.”
