Elon Musk may 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.

Here are the finals results:

Should I step down as head of Twitter? I will abide by the results of this poll.

Don’t expect Musk to step down anytime soon, however.

In the tweet, Musk doesn’t state when exactly he will step down.

Some users on Twitter don’t think Musk will step down at all but rather the poll was an elaborate plan to catch bots in real-time.

Elon’s poll is doing a lot to draw out the bots again.

2nd time he’s done it.

Wonder what the vote will be once the bots are removed.

Musk created the poll after apologizing for making policy changes without Twitter user’s consent.

The policy he was referring to was one that banned promotional social media links to sites like Trump’s Truth Social, Facebook, Instagram,  far left social media site Mastodon, and a few others.

Th policy change even had the most subscribed YouTuber Mr. Beast break his usual silence on controversial matters.

Musk has yet to comment on stepping down after the results were finalized but there have been a few people who have thrown their name in the hat to replace Musk.

One of those names is podcaster and AI researcher Lex Fridman.

Fridman took to Twitter and tweeted Elon “Let me run Twitter for a bit. No salary. All in. Focus on great engineering and increasing the amount of love in the world.”

Musk responded to Friedman’s comments by saying “You must like pain a lot. One catch: you have to invest your life savings in Twitter and it has been in the fast lane to bankruptcy since May.”

You must like pain a lot. One catch: you have to invest your life savings in Twitter and it has been in the fast lane to bankruptcy since May. Still want the job?

Another name that has been rumored to replace Musk as the CEO  was none other than Tom Anderson the founder of Myspace.

The rumors started swirling after Anderson commented on Elon’s poll after a year of inactivity on Twitter.

Depends who you get to run it !

The move threatens conservatives who were censored and banned on the platform before Elon bought Twitter months ago.

Freedom of Speech on the platform is now uncertain.

Regardless of who the next CEO is, one thing will remain.

Elon will still be the owner of Twitter.
