On Monday, Musk held a poll on Twitter asking whether he should step down as chief executive officer of Twitter Inc. He wrote, “Should I step down as head of Twitter? I will abide by the results of this poll.” In the results of the poll, 57.5 per cent of people voted yes.
Musk is actively looking for a replacement for his post, CNBC reported on Tuesday, citing sources.
The billionaire is currently facing a myriad of issues ranging from banning journalists and other social media platforms amid Tesla stock nosediving. Only 43 per cent of followers want Musk as Twitter CEO.
Replying to a tweet, Musk said on Monday, “No one wants the job who can actually keep Twitter alive. There is no successor.”
Musk had said last month that he does not want to be the CEO of any company, be it Tesla or Twitter.
The Tesla CEO is also pushing to get more investors for Twitter at the original $54.20 per share price, at which he acquired the company for $44 billion.
