After a brief tenure as the CEO of Twitter, Elon Musk announced that he will stand by the results of the poll he tweeted over the weekend and will step down.

Musk tweeted out a poll on December 18th asking users of the social media platform if he should step down as the head of Twitter. By the time the poll was over, over 17.5 million users had cast their vote. 57.5% voted yes.

Should I step down as head of Twitter? I will abide by the results of this poll.

On Tuesday evening, two days after the poll was over, he acknowledged the results, saying that he will step down when he finds someone to fill the role.

I will resign as CEO as soon as I find someone foolish enough to take the job! After that, I will just run the software & servers teams.

Musk has not given any indication as to who he will choose to replace him as the CEO of Twitter. Many people on the platform tweeted out their willingness to assume the role.

Should I run Twitter ?

I'll be glad to run Twitter for @elonmusk if he needs help, then he can go back and take care of @Tesla. We have everyone trying to take out @OANN, maybe Twitter could help set the record straight. We have a lot of info about the bad actors involved that needs to be exposed.

Fun suggestion @elonmusk:Let me run Twitter for a bit. No salary. All in. Focus on great engineering and increasing the amount of love in the world.

Just offering my help in the unlikely case it's useful.
