Elon Musk will step down as Twitter’s CEO after a recent poll he conducted didn’t turn out in his favor.
On Sunday evening shortly after attending the World Cup in Qatar, Musk took to Twitter and asked “Should I step down as head of Twitter? I will abide by the results of this poll.”
After 12 hours of voting, the poll ended and the final results were 57.5% of users on Twitter wanted Musk to step down as the head of Twitter and 42.5% wanted him to keep the reigns.
Over 17 million people voted on Elon’s poll which is believed to be the largest poll conducted on Twitter ever. On the other hand, many people thought that Twitter bots were voting to remove Elon Musk from the platform.
Here are the finals results:

On Tuesday night, Elon Musk said he will resign as Twitter’s chief executive officer as soon as someone “foolish enough to take the job.”
Once he finds a replacement, Musk said he will run the software and servers teams.
I will resign as CEO as soon as I find someone foolish enough to take the job! After that, I will just run the software & servers teams.
