In his first comments since millions of users voted for him to step down as Chief Executive Officer of Twitter, Elon Musk stated that only Twitter Blue subscribers will be able to vote in future policy-related polls on the platform.
This comes after the billionaire had conducted a poll on the microblogging platform asking the users whether he should step down as the company’s head. He also assured the users that he would abide by the results of the poll. When the poll closed on Monday, 57.5 percent users of the social media platform said he should step down.
A user had tweeted yesterday, “Hey @elonmusk, it’s unwise to run a poll like this when you are now deep state enemy #1. They have the biggest bot army on Twitter. They have 100k ‘analysts’ with 30-40 accounts all voting against you. Let’s clean up and then run this poll again. The majority has faith in you.” Another user’s tweet read, “Blue subscribers should be the only ones that can vote in policy related polls. We actually have skin in the game.” Responding to the same, the Tesla and SpaceX Chief said, “Good point. Twitter will make that change.”
Good point. Twitter will make that change.
