ELON Musk has announced that he will step down as Twitter CEO as soon as he “finds someone stupid enough to take the job.”
The shocking announcement comes after he published a poll in which users decided whether or not he should continue running the company.
“I will step down as CEO as soon as I find someone stupid enough to do the job!” Musk wrote in response to the poll.
“After that, I’ll just lead the software and server teams.”
Just two days ago, Musk asked Twitter if he thought he should resign.
In the poll, 57.5 percent of the 17.5 million respondents said he should step down as head of Twitter.
After acquiring the software company for $44 billion in October, Musk said he doesn’t plan to run it for long.
“I expect to reduce my time on Twitter and eventually find someone to run Twitter,” he told the court in November.
But only this Monday did the online trickster say: “No one wants the job that can actually keep Twitter alive.
“There is no successor.”
Musk had a tumultuous tenure as Twitter’s CEO, as he immediately lost the support of advertisers after taking the helm.
A self-proclaimed advocate for free speech, he continues to ban users while developing his ever-changing censorship rules for the app.
He recently suspended young IT student Jack Sweeney, who opened a now-deactivated Twitter account that tracked Musk’s private jet and revealed his flight details.
The tech billionaire was left spooked after he claimed his son X had been stalked in LA, prompting him to restrict “doxxing” someone’s real-time location.
He had threatened legal action against the operator of the account, claiming his son had been mistakenly stalked by a “crazy stalker.”
Musk was also recently criticized by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for canceling the accounts of half a dozen journalists who frequently covered him.
As a result of its recent coverage of Elon Musk, Twitter has suspended the accounts of independent journalist Aaron Rupar, CNN’s Donie O’Sullivan, Mashable’s Matt Binder, Washington Post’s Drew Harwell, and The New York Times’ Ryan Mac.
