Last night, Elon Musk tweeted that he will leave his position as CEO of Twitter as soon as he could.
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.
Results were announced on Monday morning. More than 17.5 million votes were cast, and of those, 57.5% of voters said Musk should resign.
No specific date has been announced for Musk to relinquish his role as CEO. Another poll was circulating on Twitter, regarding who would be a good replacement for Musk. Many had their votes set for Tom from Myspace and others had it for Snoop Dog.
Musk has warned that the company is on its road to bankruptcy since it has never been profitable.
That is why I spent the last five weeks cutting costs like crazy,” he explained.
“This company is like, basically, you are in a plane that is headed toward the ground at high speed with the engines on fire and the controls don’t work.”
