Elon Musk Twitter poll: majority vote for boss to step down

Elon Musk’s chaotic stewardship of the social media platform Twitter has taken a bizarre twist after he set up a poll where users were asked if he should stay in charge.

He said he would abide by the poll’s verdict.

But 57.5% of the 17.5 million people who took part said he should quit and so far, he has not said if he will follow their advice.

The SpaceX and Tesla owner only bought the platform in October, but his tenure as chief executive, or ‘Chief Twit’ as he called himself, has been controversial.
