Musk Reveals Why There Is No Successor if He Were to Step Down as Twitter CEO

Linkedin Share

The day after Twitter CEO posted a tweet asking users to vote on whether her should step down, he’s now facing a problem.

The poll results came in very much in favor of his stepping down — 57.5 percent to 42.5. This is, of course, an opt-in poll, which makes it completely unscientific as a measure of what Twitter users actually think or want, but Musk had vowed to abide by its results.

About 20 minutes later he warned Twitter users: “[B]e careful what you wish, as you might get it.”

Of course there were the usual suspects who claimed they knew what was going on behind the scenes, but I’m not sure anyone expected the situation to develop like this:

The responses to that tweet, in turn, have been both positive and negative, with many either putting themselves forward as the new CEO — usually with tongue firmly placed in cheek — or offering the names of others who could potentially step in, of which, my personal favorite was this:

Some simply questioned why Musk would create such a poll and promised to abide by its results if he wasn’t able to do so in the first place.

Others offered alternative scenarios if Musk did step down and no successor were named.

And finally, a number of users who — mostly because this happened on Twitter, I think — either thought Musk was planning to bring former President Donald Trump in to take over the reins (which seems highly unlikely, given the existence of competitor Truth Social) or compared Musk to Trump in a manner that was, shall we say, less favorable.

But one user probably put it best:

So, what is Musk actually planning for the future of Twitter? Anyone besides Musk who claims to have the answer to that question should probably not be taken at face value. I’m not convinced that Musk himself knows yet.

Ask me after the first of the year, and I’ll have an answer for you. Maybe.
