Elon Musk confirms that he will step down as Twitter CEO
Elon Musk has announced that he will be stepping down as the CEO of Twitter and abide by the results of the poll he had put up, which asked if he should continue managing the social media platform. Of all the people who voted in the poll, over 57 per cent voted for him to step down.
Elon Musk has confirmed that he will be stepping down as Twitter CEO, as soon as he finds someone ‘foolish’ enough to take up the job. In the poll that he put up asking if he should step down as CEO people overwhelmingly for him to step down.
Taking to Twitter, Musk announced, “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.”
Although Musk has often claimed that he does not want to be the CEO of any of his companies, this is the first instance of him publically saying that he doesn’t want to be the CEO of Twitter.
Musk stepping down as the CEO of Twitter has more layers to it than it seems. Recently, the tech mogul met up with a number of potential investors from Saudi Arabia and Qatar in a meeting that Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner brokered. The Saudis, apparently, have agreed to invest in Twitter, provided Musk steps down as CEO.
