Elon Musk declares he’ll step down as CEO of Twitter

Elon Musk claims to resign CEO of Twitter: On Tuesday, Elon Musk announced he would step down as Twitter CEO once a successor was in place.

If I can find someone that naive as to accept the position of CEO, I will gladly step down. Afterwards, I’ll solely be in charge of the software and server teams,” the billionaire announced on Twitter.

Musk put a poll to Twitter followers on Sunday, asking if they thought he should resign as CEO, and he indicated he would respect the outcome.

There were over 17.5 million ballots cast. Yes received support from almost half of voters (57.5%).

Musk indicated he did not have a successor in mind shortly after the poll was posted. One who could keep Twitter going doesn’t want the job. No one can take my place,” he tweeted.

After completing his $44 billion acquisition of Twitter at the end of October, Musk promptly appointed himself CEO, a position he had held for less than two months. He promptly got rid of the board of directors, the top executives, and around half the employees.

Since then, the self-proclaimed “free speech absolutist” has made a slew of irrational modifications to the company’s regulations, such as those governing content moderation, suspended users, and the promotion of competitors.

He has implemented big modifications to the platform based on “yes” or “no” Twitter polls, and he has made and rescinded choices seemingly at random and on a him.

After Twitter abruptly and without explanation suspended numerous famous tech journalists who had reported on him last week, he received enormous outrage. He later claimed that by reporting on a Twitter account that tracked his private plane’s travels, they had essentially shared his “assassination coordinates.”
