Musk asked subscribers for feedback on his involvement in politics. Users can vote for one of two options: “stay out of politics” or “keep shooting yourself in the foot.” At the moment, 57 percent of the respondents supported Elon’s activities in the political field and gave the green light to the continuation of the “fire”.
It should be noted that the businessman did not specify what kind of participation in politics he is talking about. Whether the businessman is trying to get the blessing of the people for a real participation in regulating the world order in this way, or whether he is just adjusting the content of Twitter to the interests of the public, remains a mystery.
Previously, Musk has repeatedly made political statements on his Twitter page. Thus, he suggested ways to resolve the conflict in Ukraine and commented on the election of the speaker of the House of Representatives of the United States Congress. In addition, the businessman published a link to documents proving that the former director of the social network tried in every possible way to hide information about the Hunter Biden laptop scandal and deleted tweets related to it.
Since Musk’s acquisition of the platform, making important decisions through surveys has become the new owner’s favorite pastime. Thus, “the people” voted to unfreeze the account of former US President Donald Trump, “amnesty” for some other blocked users, as well as for the removal of Elon from the position of head of Twitter. Explaining his non-trivial methods of managing the social network, the billionaire cited the Latin proverb “Vox populi vox Dei” (“The voice of the people is the voice of God”).
