Twitter new owner, Elon Musk, has thrown his future as the Chief Executive Officer of the platform out for the public to decide.
The twitter boss Monday initiated a poll through his official Twitter account asking whether he should step down as Twitter’s CEO.
In the poll, he tweeted that he would abide by the result of the poll.
“Should I step down as head of Twitter? I will abide by the results of this poll.” He tweeted.
At the time of filing this report, 57% tweeps have voted against his continual stay, while 43% wants him to continue in his role as the CEO of the platform.
Since the purchase of the platform from Jack Dorsey, Musk has been embroidered in series of controversies over his management of the platform.
He fired several of Twitter’s top executives and half of the company’s employees shortly after becoming CEO, and he announced a ban on remote working for the company’s remaining, lucky employees.
The remaining employees were then given the choice to work “extremely hard” or leave, and as a result, hundreds or even thousands of them left the business.
Employees who publicly opposed the new CEO’s policies or tweets were let go.
Musk then revealed a new strategy to make the social media platform’s verification badge more lucrative, which caused a stir among Twitter users.
He initially suggested a $20 monthly blue badge subscription fee, which he later reduced to $8.
He frequently altered Twitter’s policies without prior notice and by executive fiat, and he also banned users who disobeyed his new regulations.
Following a heated argument with the host of a Twitter Space he attended, Musk recently disabled the Twitter Space feature from the app. However, the company asserted that Space was shut down due to a minor error. After user complaints, it was later restored.
Musk tweeted Sunday night that every significant policy change would now be put to a vote in what appeared to be remorse for his unannounced policy changes.
He wrote, “Going forward, there will be a vote for major policy changes. My apologies. Won’t happen again.”
