Elon Musk, Twitter’s owner, will resign from the management of the social network according to the results of the consultation that he himself called and in which he asked users whether or not he should continue to lead the company.

In response to the question “Should I step down as head of Twitter? 57 percent of the social network’s users voted “no”, while 43 percent voted “yes”, out of a total of 17.5 million users who participated.

Musk himself promised, when he called for the consultation, that he would abide by the results.

The tycoon also posted another message in which he announced that there would be a vote for “major policy changes” on the network.

Faced with a comment from a volunteer to take over the leadership of the social network, Musk gave him an almost dramatic response: “You must really like pain,” the billionaire replied. “One catch: you have to invest your life savings in Twitter and it has been on a fast track to bankruptcy since May. Do you still want the job?” he ironized.

Musk’s landing on Twitter, which he bought for $44 billion, has been followed by numerous controversies, the most serious of which have been those concerning the content policy and the possibility of the social network itself admitting criticism against its owner.
