On December 19, Elon Musk invited Twitter users to decide his fate. He launched a voting campaign in which he asked if he should step down as head of Twitter. More than 17 million users took part in the voting. Of these, 57.5% supported the departure of Elon Musk. However, the businessman is not in a hurry to fulfill the will of the majority just yet.
At the same time, Elon Musk supported the user who spoke out against his departure and said that such polls should take into account only the opinion of the owners of verified accounts (blue check marks), for which they pay $8-11 per month.
“Great idea. Twitter will make this change,” the billionaire replied. In addition, he wrote that he could not find a successor for the position of head of the social network.
“As they say, be afraid of your desires, because they can come true,” Musk commented on the survey results. Later, he also posted a tweet in which he wrote: “Those who want power deserve it least of all.”

What else is new?
At the same time, Elon Musk announced another innovation on Twitter. Now brands registered on the social network can mark their employees with a special square icon.
Recall that the American billionaire took control of the social network at the end of October 2022. Musk paid $44 billion for its purchase. After that, Twitter got into a series of scandals because of the policies and behavior of the new owner. In particular, after the arrival of Musk, the company began to reduce staff.
By his decision, the social network refused to permanently block pages. This applies even to “the most ultra-left accounts spewing complete lies,” Musk wrote at the time.
In addition, employees who were responsible for combating fakes and content moderation were fired from Twitter. As a result, the new policy of the social network scared off potential advertisers, which caused the company to have financial problems. It is reported that the Twitter office is looking for new investments that will go into the upcoming debt payments.
