Elon Musk has suggested that he will be stepping down from his role as “head of Twitter.”
On Sunday, Musk posted one of his famous polls asking whether he should “step down.”
“I will abide by the results of this poll,” he declared in the post.
Should I step down as head of Twitter? I will abide by the results of this poll.

However, the poll has now closed and it’s not looking good for Musk.
After just over 17.5 million votes, the poll shows that 57.5 percent of people said “yes,” Musk should “step down.”
Just 42.5 percent voted “no” in response.
Musk said in a separate tweet, “The question is not finding a CEO, the question is finding a CEO who can keep Twitter alive.”
“Those who want power are the ones who least deserve it,” he added.

The poll from Musk comes after he faced backlash during the World Cup on Sunday after the company put out a statement saying that it was going to ban users from being able to promote their other social media accounts on other platforms.
“Going forward, there will be a vote for major policy changes,” Musk tweeted.
“My apologies. Won’t happen again.”
Since taking over the company, Musk has used the polls to make decisions regarding the platform.
Among the most popular was the poll to reinstate President Donald Trump’s account.
After he suspended several leftist media figures last week for violating Twitter’s new “doxxing” rules, Musk also took a poll to ask whether the suspensions should be lifted.
Twitter users voted in favor of lifting the suspensions and Musk immediately restored the accounts.
The people have spoken.
Accounts who doxxed my location will have their suspension lifted now. https://t.co/MFdXbEQFCe
