Elon Musk, the new CEO of Twitter, posted a poll on the micro-blogging networking site on Sunday afternoon, asking people if they thought he should continue leading the firm or should resign. After about 12 hours, the results are in with more than 17 million votes, where 57.6% of people agreed that Musk should resign.
Elon Musk’s Twitter Poll
The vote comes less than two months after Tesla’s CEO bought Twitter for $44 billion at the end of October, giving him sole control of the social media firm. The takeover has already proven to be turbulent, with mass firings and executive reshuffling, at the top of Musk’s agenda as he worked his way through the company.
Musk wrote in his initial post, “I will abide by the results of this poll,” but he hasn’t spoken on the matter since the poll closed at 3:20 in the morning.
Should I step down as head of Twitter? I will abide by the results of this poll.

Musk further tweeted that,
No one wants the job who can actually keep Twitter alive. There is no successor.
Will Musk Step Down?
Since he first published the poll, Musk has been very cryptic in his tweets. One hour after the polls went live, he added, “As the saying goes, be careful what you wish, as you might get it,”
DOGE Fan Musk Hinted To Leave
In spite of the fact that the poll would appear to be a spur-of-the-moment decision, the newly appointed head of Twitter has already given indications that he does not intend to be CEO in the long run.
In November, Musk stated that he planned to most likely look for a new executive to lead the social media site. Tess Renearson, who was in charge of crypto at Twitter, left the company in November as well.
What’s In For Dogecoin (DOGE)?
Now, with the brewing uncertainty, the price of Elon Musk’s favorite cryptocurrency — Dogecoin (DOGE) — remains in limbo by falling over 0.5% in the past 1 hour and by 1.3% in the last 24 hours.
Although, the meteoric rise of the meme cryptocurrency has been primarily fueled by Musk’s tweets, reflecting his fondness for the project; his detachment from Twitter may not have a significant impact — as many industry experts tend to believe. The king meme coin, DOGE, is currently trading at around $0.077, at the time of writing.
