Twitter CEO Elon Musk took a poll on the platform asking if he should step down as the company’s leader, and a majority of users are in favor of him stepping down as the company’s leader.

Musk shared a poll on his Twitter account Sunday night, asking his users if he should step down as head of the social media platform.

“Should I step down as head of Twitter, I will be subject to the results of this survey,” Musk wrote.

The poll closed at 6:20 a.m. ET on Monday, with a majority of respondents favoring his resignation. Over 17 million users have weighed in.

According to the final results of Musk’s survey, 57.5% of the respondents are in favor of his departure, and 42.5% believe that he should remain the CEO of Twitter.

“As they say, be careful what you wish for because you might get it,” Musk tweeted Sunday night shortly after posting the request.

Musk has said he will follow the results of the survey, so it is expected that he will step down in the future if he can find a replacement suitable for the job.

“Nobody wants the job that actually keeps Twitter alive. There is no successor,” Musk wrote on Twitter in response to a suggestion by users that he had already chosen a replacement.

And while Musk will step down as CEO of Twitter, he will still own the social media giant.

When asked, MySpace co-founder Tom Anderson said his support depends on who succeeds Musk.

“Depends on who gets to run it,” Anderson tweeted in response to Musk’s question.

The survey comes after Twitter announced a controversial policy on Sunday that bans users from promoting their accounts on other social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram and Truth Social. The Twitter thread announcing the policy and rule was quickly deleted after backlash from users of the platform.

“Going forward, there will be a vote in favor of political changes. I apologize. It won’t happen again,” he tweeted hours after the initial policy was announced.
