Islam News – After Elon Musk asked Twitter users if he should step down as head of the social media site, 57.5 percent of the 17 million respondents voted yes. Musk had said he would “abide by the results.” After voting ended yesterday, there was no immediate response from Musk on Twitter.

The poll may be a tacit acknowledgment of Twitter’s recent chaos. In the weeks since Musk bought Twitter for $44 billion in late October, he’s carried out mass layoffs and executives have resigned. Hate speech has also risen on the platform.

Outrage mounted last week after the accounts of several journalists were suspended, then reinstated. On Sunday, Twitter users exploded in anger again after Musk tried to prevent them from sharing links to rival platforms.

Context: Musk’s ownership of Twitter may be interfering with his other ventures. Since he bought Twitter, the value of Tesla has sunk.
