Musk’s announcement about him giving up the role of Twitter CEO comes in response to a Twitter poll that he organised on December 19, 2022.

At this point, Twitterati also believes that since the poll results weighed heavier on Musk stepping down as Twitter’s head, the Chief Twit has clarified the same with his latest tweet. As per poll results, 57.5 per cent of the voters, voted in favour of Elon Musk stepping down from the role of Twitter CEO.
