Twitter Users Reject Elon Musk as CEO: Poll

Elon Musk surprised everybody today by conducting a poll on Twitter, asking people if he should step down as the head of the social media giant. Musk also said that he would abide by the results of the poll. Well, the poll concluded with 57.5% wanting Musk to step down as Twitter’s boss. A total of 17.5 million people participated in the poll.

Musk is yet to respond to the poll’s results. Chances are that he will make some statement about how he would hand over the reins to his successor.

Since his $44 billion purchase of the site, Musk has come under fire from several corners regarding his leadership. However, many have even praised his decisions as the de facto boss. The poll got replies from several prominent figures in finance and tech.

Micheal Saylor, the Bitcoin (BTC) maximalist, conducted his poll, which concluded with 82% saying the site got better under Musk‘s leadership.

Ethereum (ETH) co-founder Vitalik Buterin said that he respected the move.

Meanwhile, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ) said, “no, stay the course.”

However, we are yet to see how the move plays out. This is not the first time Musk has conducted a poll. Moreover, in the past, he has stayed true to his word regarding polls on Twitter. Therefore, a statement from the billionaire owner of Tesla, SpaceX, and The Boring Company, is expected shortly.

Will Musk stepping down affect how Twitter functions?

Well, Musk will remain the owner of the social media platform. Hence, the general direction of the company will likely remain the same. Internal leadership, though, is likely to change with a new head.

Many in the Dogecoin (DOGE) community are worried that the social media platform will abandon its plans to incorporate the popular crypto token. However, since Musk is still the owner, Dogecoin payments will likely still make their way into the application.
