    Elon Musk could step down as the chief executive of Twitter, following a poll on his future at the social media company.

    Late last night Musk shared a poll asking Twitter users whether he should 'step down as head of Twitter', and that he would respect the results of the poll.

    The poll has now closed and 57.5% of voters chose 'Yes', meaning an overwhelming majority want Musk out of the top job.

    Musk is yet to react to the vote, but Twitter users have already been teasing him about who could takeover, with Tom from Myspace responding: "Depends who you get to run it !".

    The SpaceX and Tesla CEO posted the poll out of nowhere last night, shortly after attending the World Cup Final in Qatar.

    He has seen increasing pressure from Tesla investors to cut back on the time he spends on Twitter, with some pulling their money out of the electric car firm following weeks of 'erratic' behaviour from Musk.

    He was criticised last week for banning journalists from Twitter, as well as Jack Sweeney, a young computer scientist who created a live feed tracking Musk's private jet.

    Musk has also sacked about half of the previous staff at Twitter, as well as shaken up the social media app's verification system.

    This led to chaos, with a boom in 'parody' accounts impersonating the likes of the Pope or Nintendo using a blue tick.

    Musk bought Twitter earlier this year for $44bn (£36billion), and currently manages it full-time on top of being the CEO of SpaceX, Tesla, Neuralink, and other companies. It's not really clear where—or if—he finds the time to do a good job of all of that at once.
