After weeks of turmoil surrounding the social media platform, Twitter users made it very apparent to Musk earlier this week that the majority of them wanted him to resign from his position. In the poll asked “Should I step down as leader of Twitter?” around 57.5% of the 17.5 million participants responded in the yes.
Musk eventually took control of Twitter at the end of October after several legal battles that lasted over months and nearly resulted in a full-blown trial. Musk visited Twitter’s offices holding a sink after finalising the $44 billion acquisition. Mass layoffs, disputes over blue checkmarks, the restoration of Donald Trump’s account, the banning of numerous journalists, the restriction on advertising other social media platforms, and Twitter’s daily loss of millions of dollars have all occurred during the past two months.
