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 & servers teams.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) December 21, 2022
Twitter might have already found a replacement for the position. American Rapper, Snoop Dogg, ran a poll asking users whether he should run the platform. Users have positively reacted with 81% voting yes.
One might wonder why such a major decision has been made using a poll. Well, Elon Musk has always made use of Twitter polls to move forward with his ‘free speech’ agenda. A few days ago, he Tweeted that he will make use of votes for major policy changes and users with blue tick can contribute to key policy changes at the platform. And he has abided by what he said.
After his Twitter takeover, Elon had fired some of the top executives, thereby becoming the sole director of the platform. The new CEO might have their hands full if they are to take on the mantle, especially with the strict regimes made by the Twitter owner.
