Twitter CEO Elon Musk began his latest user poll over the weekend, asking the public whether he should step down as head of the social network.
When voting ended early Monday, 17.5 million users had a say, with 57.5% voting “Yes” in favor of Musk’s resignation.
Mimicking his previous public polls, Elon Musk has stated that he will stick to the results, implying that a potential CEO change at Twitter may be imminent.
Commenting on potential successors, Twitter’s new owner said: “It’s not a matter of finding a CEO, but finding a CEO who can keep Twitter alive.”
Since taking over Twitter, Mr. Musk has been at the center of many controversies surrounding Twitter’s content policy, as well as his personal involvement in the decision-making process.
The billionaire has also drawn criticism from investors in his other ventures — most notably Tesla (NASDAQ:) — who have blamed the TSLA’s nearly 60 percent drop in price. % from the beginning of the year is due to Musk’s distraction and lack of confidence in his leadership ability.
