New York: Twitter users voted on Monday for Elon Musk to quit as head of the social media giant in a poll the technology tycoon ran on his future and promised to abide by its results.
A total of 57.5 per cent voted “yes” after the 51-year-old billionaire asked his 122 million followers whether he should stand down. Over 17 million votes were cast in the poll that began on Sunday evening and ended early Monday morning with most respondents voting in the affirmative. Musk did not immediately react to the outcome of the vote.
He tweeted on Sunday: “Should I step down as head of Twitter? I will abide by the results of this poll”. “As the saying goes, be careful what you wish, as you might get it,” Musk added in a later tweet.
