Having purchased the platform in October, it is fair to say that the tenure as been a turbulent one for Musk, with a noticeable rise in hate speeches reported on the site.

One such problem has been Kanye West, with the rapper being removed from several social media sites, as well as household names including Adidas cutting ties with him.

Musk had previously promised to improve Twitter and promote free speech.

“keep Twitter Alive”

News of this poll comes just after Musk had also declared war on those who intend on promoting other social media sites on Twitter.

The CEO issued a ban on users posting links to their other social media accounts. Such accounts include Facebook, Instagram, right throught to Donald Trump’s Truth Social.

Following the poll’s conclusion, Elon Musk also responded to a number of comments from Twitter users, including telling one that “The question is not finding a CEO, the question is finding a CEO who can keep Twitter alive”. 

“No one wants the job who can actually keep Twitter alive. There is no successor”, the CEO added.

It remains unclear if Musk will hand over the day to day running of the site or not.

It has also emerged that over 80% of users also voted Yes to an opinion poll put forward by rapper Snoop Dogg, who asked if he should deputise in Musk’s place.
