Elon Musk may be out as Twitter CEO if he follows through on his pledge to abide by a poll he posted asking whether he should step down from his position as head of the social media platform.
"Should I step down as head of Twitter? I will abide by the results of this poll," Musk tweeted Sunday with a survey that ended Monday morning.
According to the final results, 57.5% of the more than 17.5 million respondents said, "Yes," and 42.5% said, "No."
Musk created the poll amid controversy surrounding Twitter's decision to ban some journalists who publish live locations of others and to ban accounts that promote other social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram and Truth Social.
"As the saying goes, be careful what you wish, as you might get it," Musk tweeted as the results of the poll came in.
