Elon Musk announced on Tuesday that he will stand down as CEO of Twitter once he finds a replacement, following a vote on the social media network in which a majority of people believed he should quit.
“I will quit as CEO as soon as I find someone stupid enough to accept the position!” “After that, I’ll solely be in charge of the software and servers teams,” Musk stated on Twitter.
With almost 17.5 million votes cast, 57.5 percent of users who responded to Musk’s poll indicated he should stand down as Twitter’s CEO, only weeks after Musk purchased the business and assumed the job.
Musk had promised to follow the results of the poll when he posted it. Another 42.5 percent of people believe Musk should remain in his position.
Musk’s term as CEO has been marred by controversy, with the billionaire cutting Twitter workers, reducing content control, and changing the platform’s user verification method.
