Musk Ask Twitter Poll If He should Remain As Boss

Billionaire Twitter owner and Tesla CEO, Elon Musk launched a poll on the social media platform on Monday,  December 19,  asking whether he should step down as head of the company, adding that he would abide by the poll results.

The poll is scheduled to close around Monday night,  December 19, although Musk did not give details on when he would step down if the poll results said he should.

Replying to one Twitter user’s comment on a possible change in CEO, Musk said “There is no successor”.

 

The poll comes after Twitter’s Sunday policy update, which prohibited accounts created solely for the purpose of promoting other social media firms and content that contains links or usernames for rival platforms.

Minutes before the poll, Musk apologised and tweeted “Going forward, there will be a vote for major policy changes.” A few hours later, Twitter started a poll asking users if the platform should have a policy preventing accounts that advertise other social media platforms on Twitter.

The policy update would impact content from social media platforms like Meta Platforms’ Facebook and Instagram, along with Mastodon, Truth Social, Tribel, Nostr and Post while allowing cross-content posting, Twitter support said in a tweet.

 Last week, Twitter disbanded its Trust and Safety Council, a volunteer group formed in 2016 to advise the social media platform on site decisions.

Twitter on Thursday evening banned the accounts of several high-profile journalists from the nation’s top news organizations, marking a significant attempt by new owner and self-described free speech absolutist Elon Musk to wield his unilateral authority over the platform to censor the press.
