Musk Says He Will Resign as Twitter CEO When He Finds Successor

On Tuesday, Elon Musk said he would resign as Twitter's chief executive when he found "someone foolish enough to take the job," two days after he had asked his 122 million Twitter followers whether he should step down as the leader of the social media site and a majority of respondents answered yes.

Musk, who bought Twitter for $44 billion in late October, asked his followers the question on Sunday night after facing a backlash for unpopular new content moderation policies and the seemingly capricious barring and reinstatement of high-profile users.

The survey attracted 17.5 million votes. Musk had said he would abide by the result, and more than 57 percent agreed that he should step down.
