As criticism of his management of Twitter increases, Elon Musk has shared a poll in which he asks if he should resign from his position at the head of the social network.
Will Elon Musk quit Twitter?
On Twitter, Elon Musk shared a poll in which he simply asks whether or not he should resign from the head of the social network :
Should I step down as head of Twitter? I will abide by the results of this poll.
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) December 18, 2022
While there are about four hours left to vote as these lines are written, the whimsical entrepreneur also clarified that he would stand by the results of the said poll. If he keeps his word, Elon Musk could therefore indeed resign, because for the moment the results are in favor of the “Yes” with 56.6%, against 43.4% for the “No”.
If the “Yes” wins, which seems to be looming, Twitter could then undergo a new twist after a year 2022 already well marked, unless it is just a simple communication stunt.

Management subject to criticism
This survey at this precise moment is not insignificant. Indeed, in a since-deleted tweet, the Twitter Support account had announced that the sharing of external links to other social networks would no longer be accepted. More specifically, accounts created solely for promotional purposes would have been targeted:
Twitter Support announcement regarding external links
Since the tweet has been deleted, this new rule may a priori be considered null and void. Following this, Elon Musk rightly announced that all major changes would now be up for a votethree minutes before launching his own poll regarding his possible resignation:
Going forward, there will be a vote for major policy changes. My apologies. Won’t happen again.

Earlier in the week, Elon Musk was talked about after the blocking of the accounts of certain journalists working in particular for CNN, The New York Times or The Washington Post. The entrepreneur argues that they would have shared his position in real time:
They posted my exact real-time location, basically assassination coordinates, in (obvious) direct violation of Twitter terms of service
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) December 16, 2022
However, The Washington Post defended itself by replying that it was not so. The newspaper claims that its banned journalist Drew Harwell was actually covering the news about the suspension of the “ElonJet” Twitter account. which showed the contractor’s private jet routes.
Whatever the end of the story, if during the takeover of Twitter, the entrepreneur announced that he wanted to defend freedom of expression, his actions in recent months are now subject to criticism.
