Elon Musk Stepping Down As The CEO Of Twitter, Reveals What he’ll Do Next

Published on

Elon Musk, the chief executive officer of Twitter, shook up the social media behemoth with his October acquisition of the firm and shook up quite a few people with his pronouncements and changes. Musk has been working overtime with his changes and revelations; he has released internal files regarding the links between the Dorsey-run Twitter censorship of voices and the FBI during the Biden administration, fired a large number of employees, issued warnings about coming to work and working long hours, and altered the physical workplace itself.

Now, there are indications that Musk may be slowing down his enormous platform upgrades and moving on to other projects. Musk recently conducted a Twitter poll asking if he should remain CEO or be replaced by another executive.

Musk’s poll is a response to the outrage he received during the World Cup on Sunday after the firm issued a statement prohibiting users from promoting their other social media profiles on other platforms. Unlike some of his earlier moves, the news prompted social media outcry.

Musk supported the proposal. “Going forward, there will be a vote for major policy changes,” Musk tweeted. “My apologies. Won’t happen again.”

Musk then ran a poll at the beginning of the week asking Twitter users if he should “step down as head of Twitter.” Musk stated at the time,  “I will abide by the results of this poll.”

The poll, which lasted under 12 hours, received 17,502,391 votes, with 57.5% voting “yes” and 42.5% voting “no” that Musk should stand down. Musk said on Tuesday that he will certainly resign from his position at the firm.

Musk subsequently claimed that the poll was intended to identify bots in activity, but also provided an update on the topic on Tuesday night, stating that he will stand away once he finds someone else to oversee Twitter and will focus on the company’s software and hardware.

“I will resign as CEO as soon as I find someone foolish enough to take the job!” he tweeted. “After that, I will just run the software & servers teams.”

Twitter exploded with reactions and amusing answers to Musk’s statement, with some users offering to become Twitter’s CEO.

Tom Anderson, a digital entrepreneur and co-founder of the social networking website Myspace, which he co-founded with Chris DeWolfe in 2003, responded as @myspacetom. Later, he served as president of Myspace and as a strategic advisor to the firm Wikipedia. As a CV, the ad offered a photograph of Anderson with his data. The post was filled with praise for Myspace and the past. Tom tweets again, “Depends on who you get to run it!”
