Elon Musk is looking for the next CEO of Twitter

Elon Musk’s taking over Twitter for $44 billion has been in the news for some time. Added to that the phenomenon has received a lot of chaos and controversy, with some investors questioning if he is too distracted to also properly run his electric vehicle automaker Tesla Inc in which he is personally involved in production and engineering. But this time Musk has said something which is beyond the imagination of the Individual. On Tuesday he claimed that he will step down as chief executive of Twitter Inc once he finds a replacement, but will still run some key divisions of the social media platform.

“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,” Musk wrote on Twitter.


The Voting

According to Reuters, “This is the first time Musk has mentioned stepping down as chief of the social media platform, after Twitter users voted for him to resign in a poll, which the billionaire launched on Sunday evening.

In the poll, 57.5% of around 17.5 million people voted “yes.” Musk had said on Sunday he would abide by the results. He has not provided a time frame for when he will step down and no successor has been named.

The poll results capped a whirlwind week that included changes to Twitter’s privacy policy and the suspension – and reinstatement – of journalists’ accounts that drew condemnation from news organizations, advocacy groups and officials across Europe.”

But according to Euro News, “He has ignored results of polls he has run before, redoing ones that may not have had the result he wanted, including a poll on unsuspending accounts that he claimed had revealed his real-time location.

A number of those accounts were of journalists from the mainstream media, such as Donie O’Sullivan from CNN, who had tweeted an official LAPD statement regarding a tweet sent by Musk.”
