Elon Musk Allows Twitter to Decide Whether He'll Continue as...

To put it bluntly, Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter is not exactly going to plan, and he knows it.

The Tesla CEO purchased the social media giant for $44 billion just several weeks ago, (and after several months of very public bickering about the deal), only to suggest almost immediately the the platform was on the verge of bankruptcy.

Now, as his management style continue to receive serious blowback, Musk appears to be ready to quit Twitter altogether…just so long as the nation votes him out.

Elon Musk shocked Twitter users Sunday when he posted a poll asking whether he should resign as Twitter’s CEO.

“Should I step down as head of Twitter? I will abide by the results of this poll,” Musk tweeted.

As of Sunday night, the poll had over 4 million votes with 57.9 percent of respondents saying Musk should step down and 42.1 percent saying he should not step down.

In a subsequent tweet, Musk wrote “As the saying goes, be careful what you wish, as you might get it”.

Musk has been using the public voting tactic to make a number of important decisions for the company of late, but had received heavy criticism over a recent change that was not left up to the democratic process.

Musk’s latest move appears to be prompted by backlash Twitter received over the weekend for announcing a policy that would ban the promotion of content from other social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Mastodon, Truth Social, Tribel, Nostr and Post from the platform.

“Specifically, we will remove accounts created solely for the purpose of promoting other social platforms and content that contains links or usernames for the following platforms: Facebook, Instagram, Mastodon, Truth Social, Tribel, Nostr and Post,” a now-deleted tweet from Twitter Support stated.

The eccentric billionaire has also made waves by releasing a number of pieces of evidence from deep within Twitter’s internal communications, many of which paint a picture of a platform bereft with corruption and censorship.
