Poll: Twitter users want Musk out

Millions of Twitter users called on Elon Musk to step down as head of the social network in a poll on the platform created by the billionaire and which he promised to comply with.

However, when voting concluded on Monday, it was unclear whether there would be a new leader for the social network, which has grown more chaotic and confused under Musk, whose measures were quickly issued and then rolled back by him. taken or replaced.

Kasturi competed in the World Cup final in Qatar, where she opened on pole. After it was shut down 12 hours later, there was no immediate comment from Twitter or Musk, who could find himself flying back to the United States on Monday morning.

More than half of the 17.5 million people who took the poll answered “yes” to the question of whether Musk should step down as head of the company.

Musk has conducted a series of unscientific investigations into issues critical to the social network, including whether he should revoke the suspension of journalists’ accounts, a move that drew widespread criticism inside and outside the media sector.

The poll echoes a sense of turmoil on Twitter since Musk announced in late October to acquire the company for $44 billion and potentially leave driving in the hands of its users.

Among those users are people Musk allowed back after being banned for spreading racism, hate and misinformation.

Since buying Twitter, Musk has presided over a dizzying series of changes that have irked advertising companies and angered users. It has furloughed half the staff, canceled the contracts of content moderators and disbanded a council of trust and security advisers. He has relaxed rules against spreading misinformation about COVID-19 and called for criminal prosecution of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert and one of the drivers of the coronavirus response.
