The owner of the social network Twitter, Elon Musk, has launched a survey this Sunday night for users to decide whether they should continue to lead the company or not. : “Should I continue to lead Twitter? I will abide by the results of this poll.”
“As the proverb says, be careful what you wish for, you may end up getting it,” he wrote in the next post on his profile, just twenty minutes later. The poll closed at 12,000 (Spanish time) with more than 17.5 million votes, with 57.5% of the votes leaning towards ‘yes’.
He has also written another ‘tweet’ in which he has announced that “there will be a vote for further policy changes (in the social network)”, he has expressed his apologies and has assured that “it will not happen again” without specifying what he means . In addition, the tycoon has clarified, before the avalanche of comments, that “it is not about finding an executive director (CEO), but about finding an executive director who can keep Twitter alive.”
“You have to like pain a lot,” the millionaire replied. “, has ironized in response to a comment from someone who volunteered to take the direction of the company. “Nobody wants the job that would really keep Twitter alive. There is no successor,” he noted before the survey was completed.
Musk’s purchase of Twitter has been marked by numerous controversies, the most serious being references to content policy and the possibility that the network itself admits criticism of its owner. Last Thursday, the social network suspended the accounts of several journalists or bloggers who had been critical of Musk, which sparked criticism from the US government and the European Union, and which the owner solved by issuing another survey.
The question about his role in the direction of Twitter seems to indicate that he would be willing to name another person to take charge of the network, an idea that in the last week has been expressed, for example, by executives of Tesla -the great Musk’s business project that provides him with most of his fortune.
