Another day, another scandal involving Elon Musk. On Twitter, Elon Musk just started a poll asking users to choose his potential future responsibilities. The multi-billionaire polled Twitter users on whether he should step down as Twitter’s CEO and choose someone else to run the business.
The poll results have been released. More than 57 percent of users who cast ballots believe Musk should step down as CEO and appoint a replacement. Since Musk declared that he will follow the poll’s findings, it is highly likely that Twitter will soon have a new CEO. Musk has, however, also voiced worries about locating the ideal candidate “who can genuinely keep Twitter alive.”
Musk was motivated to start the poll by Twitter’s contentious and since-deleted “Promotion of other social networks policy.” To prevent users from sharing connections to their other social media accounts, it was created. Users were unable to include links in their Twitter biographies to their Facebook, Instagram, Mastodon, Truth Social, Tribel, Post, and Nostr profiles. Third-party social media link aggregators like linktr.ee and lnk.bio were also restricted by the legislation.
As was to be expected, Twitter came under heavy fire for preventing users from posting links to their other social network accounts. The business had to reverse course after announcing the new policy for several hours. The outcry also gave Musk the idea for the poll. Everyone is eager to hear from Musk on the poll results right now.
Users were asked in previous comparable polls by Elon Musk whether he should relax the ban on Donald Trump, the outgoing president of the United States of America. Following the poll’s findings, he also unfroze the accounts of a few journalists. In a similar vein, Musk is expected to recruit a new CEO for the microblogging platform in this instance.
Musk will continue to serve as CEO until he finds someone qualified to maintain the platform, presuming he will respect the poll’s conclusions. To prevent any comparable user backlash, the Musk-led Twitter will continue to conduct fresh polls before making any significant policy decisions.
What do you think of Elon Musk’s leadership of Twitter, readers? Would you prefer that he remain the CEO? Post a comment and let us know.
