Elon Musk Said He Would Step Down as Twitter CEO After Finding a Replacement


Our world is problematic, and the three biggest issues we can’t get rid of are: 

  1. Global warming
  2. Mariah Carey’s song playing everywhere
  3. Elon Musk causing more trouble with Twitter

Ok, maybe the last one is possible.

Just maybe.

Elon Musk Confirms Stepping Down from Chief of Twitter Position

Following his viral poll on Sunday (18 December) that voted in favour of him stepping down as Chief Twit, the multibillionaire has released a tweet confirming his leaving. 

“I will resign as CEO as soon as I find someone foolish enough to take the job! After that, I will just run the software and servers teams,” he wrote. 

In the original poll, he asked: “Should I step down as head of Twitter? I will abide by the results of this poll.” 

After 57.5% of the 17.5 million voters chose “yes,” the online-active Musk did not immediately respond after the results were released. 

Instead, he broke the silence by replying: “Interesting” to claims that fake accounts may have rigged the results. Adding on, he said Twitter would change that only Twitter Blue subscribers can vote in policy-related polls.

For those who don’t know, Twitter Blue is a subscription service that allows users to pay US$8 (~S$11) for a blue tick to appear next to their username. 

Now, we finally have confirmation that Musk is stepping down. 

Boon or bane?

Finding Someone Foolish Enough

Even if he were to step out the door now, there’s nobody to take his seat, nobody “foolish enough.”

As he’s announced before, “no one wants the job who can actually keep Twitter alive. There is no successor.”



Like the RI students two years back, Twitter has been flushing money down the drain. With almost US$13 billion (S$17.6 billion) of debt, it’s no wonder that nobody wants to commandeer this sinking ship.

Even Musk himself declared that “it has been in the fast lane to bankruptcy since May.” 

The vote tells us that we might see the end of Musk. But what if we see the end of Twitter as well?

Until then, we can only hope for that foolish someone to take over and steer the social media platform on the right path.
