Elon Musk put his future as head of Twitter to a vote - and he'll now be stepping down as CEO
Elon Musk tweeted from his own Twitter account 'Should I step down as head of Twitter? I will abide by the results of this poll.' The poll, or vote, allowed Twitter users to have their say if the Telsa and SpaceX businessman should remain in his position as head of Twitter, or step down.
There were 17,502,391 votes on Musk's own poll and the two options were 'Yes' and 'No'. 57.5% voted for Musk to step down as head of Twitter, whilst 42.5% voted for him to stay as head of the social networking company.
Elon Musk would still remain as the owner of Twitter even when he does step down as CEO.
Since Elon Musk purchased Twitter back on 27 October for £38.1, there have been a number of changes to the microblogging site, some of which including the firing of staff from an executive level right down to other staff members who keep Twitter running. There's also Twitter Blue which allows you to have your own blue checkmark on your Twitter profile if you pay a subscription fee.
