Musk now says only Twitter Blue subscribers will be able to vote in future policy-related poll, after 57.5 percent of people voted against him continuing on as Twitter CEO in a poll on Sunday 

Over 10 million people participated in a public poll held by Elon Musk that asked people’s opinion on whether the billionaire should step down as the CEO of Twitter. According to a report by Euronews on Tuesday, December 20, the poll started on Sunday and closed on Monday morning, after over 57.5 percent of people voted in the favour of Elon stepping down as the CEO.  

The report said, after the declaration of the poll results, Musk tweeted, “As the saying goes, be careful what you wish, as you might get it”. A few hours later, some users suggested that the results were due to participation by fake accounts. 

Elon later announced that for future policy-related polls, only Twitter Blue subscribers will be allowed to participate.  This statement came after he had agreed to abide by the results of the previous polls.  

Last week, several accounts of journalists had also been reactivated after Elon held a public poll asking people to vote if the accounts should be activated immediately or after a week’s suspension. After the poll ended, the majority of the people demanded the accounts be restored immediately.
