Elon Musk asks Twitter users if he should step down as boss of social media site

Elon Musk has begun to poll Twitter users to find out if he should resign as the head of the social media platform.

In October, Musk bought Twitter for $44bn. However, his short tenure at Twitter has been turbulent.

His poll was initiated by SpaceX and Tesla’s owner just after 11pm UK Time. He wrote: “Should i step down as Head of Twitter?”

“I will follow the results of this poll.”


He added, “Although the ‘yes” votes were edging ahead about 20 minutes later, “Be careful what you wish for, because you might get it.”

At 7:15 AM UK time, 13.5 Million users had voted and 56.7% said that Musk should be fired.

Responding to several comments from users, he said: “The question not finding a CEO is the question, but finding a CEO that can keep Twitter alive.”

He said, “No one wants to be a Twitter administrator.” There is no successor.”

A second user offered to do the job, and Mr Musk responded: “You must enjoy pain a lot.”

“One catch: You have to put your life savings into Twitter. It has been on the fast track to bankruptcy since May.

“Do you still want the job?”

He had earlier banned promotion of Twitter accounts on his platform, declaring war on Twitter’s rival social media platforms.

Users could be subject to account suspension, lock or deletion if they post links from their accounts on other social media sites such as Meta-owned Facebook, Instagram and Mastodon, Donald Trump’s Truth Social, and Mastodon.

He reinstated several Twitter accounts that were suspended last week due to his concern over the publication of public information about his plane.

The billionaire dismissed thousands of workers after he assumed control, raising concerns about the policeing of abuse and disinformation.

Last week, disbanded its Trust and Safety Council. This group was made up of campaigners and charities who advised site bosses about their moderation policies.

Three council members who quit complained that Musk had created a “two-tier” Twitter where paid subscribers would receive more benefits than those with free access.

They warned that this would “take away both the credibility and beauty of Twitter, which is a platform where anyone can be heard.”

After poll votes, Donald Trump’s Twitter account has been reinstated.

Musk pledged to improve Twitter by getting rid of fake accounts and encouraging free speech when he assumed control.

It has lost major advertisers as concerns grow about its direction and its ability to pay interest on the $13bn of debt Musk purchased to purchase it.

The Reuters news agency reported that Musk’s team asked investors for additional funding on Saturday, just days after selling $3.6bn more Tesla shares. This means that he has now sold almost $40bn worth of shares in his electric car company.
