Elon Musk Loses Twitter Poll Asking, “Should I Step Down as Head of Twitter?”

HeadlineDec 19, 2022

Elon Musk could be resigning as Twitter CEO after a poll on Twitter closed this morning with 57.5% voting “yes” to Musk’s question, “Should I step down as head of Twitter?” Twitter’s embattled CEO said he would abide by the results when he posted the poll Sunday evening. The latest twist comes after another chaotic week for Twitter. On Sunday, a new policy banning users from sharing accounts on other platforms received swift backlash — the move was apparently undone just hours later. Earlier in the day, Musk was pictured with Jared Kushner as the pair watched Argentina’s victory over France in the World Cup final in Qatar.
