Twitter users vote for Elon Musk to resign as CEO

More than 10 million Twitter users voted in favor of Elon Musk’s resignation as CEO of the social networking company. This was the result of the survey carried out by Elon Musk himself via Twitter.

As he has done with some of the decisions he’s made since taking over Twitter, Musk in a Twitter poll created on Sunday asked whether he should step down as chief executive and vowed to abide by the poll’s result.

In the Twitter poll, Musk asked: “Should I resign as head of Twitter? Added ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ options for people to vote on.

The results: By Monday afternoon, when the poll ended, 17.5 million users had voted with 57.5%, representing more than 10 million users voting ‘Yes’, while 42.5 % was against the idea of ​​Musk resigning.

However, it is unclear at press time if and when Musk will stick to his promise to deliver on the poll results.

The news continues after this announcement.

Musk’s policy woes: The poll followed the online reaction after Musk made sudden policy changes that affected Twitter users in the past week. The company, for example, introduced a new social media platform promotion policy on Sunday, which prohibited users from sharing links to some of its other social media accounts. Twitter, however, later removed the clause from its policy after criticism.

The news continues after this announcement.

  • Earlier, Twitter also made changes to its policy on “doxxing,” which the company now defines as “sharing someone’s private information online without their permission.”
  • The new policy prohibits users from sharing other people’s live location information, home addresses, contact information, or physical location information, but it has left many confused about what information crosses the Twitter line.
  • Musk’s policy changes were used as justification to suspend the Twitter accounts of a number of US-based journalists, commentators and others who have criticized the CEO or his companies in the past. Some of the accounts were fully or partially restored a few days later, but not all.
