Businessman Elon Musk has promised to quit as Twitter CEO following a poll just two months after buying the platform for $44 billion.

Elon Musk has vowed to quit as Twitter CEO two months after buying the platform for $44 billion.

The 51-year-old Tesla co-founded has responded to a social media poll he posted on the site which asked whether he should "step down as head of Twitter", with 57.5 percent of people who voting saying yes.

On Tuesday night (20.12.22), he tweeted: "I will resign as CEO as soon as I find someone foolish enough to take the job! After that, I will just run the software [and] servers’ teams."

Over the weekend, he had promised to "abide by the results of this poll", which ran for 12 hours and saw 17,502,391 Twitter users cast their vote.

The billionaire insisted he didn't have a successor in mind when he posed the question.

In response to one user suggesting he already has a new CEO "picked out", Elon replied: "No one wants the job who can actually keep Twitter alive. There is no successor."

He also wrote to another user: "The question is not finding a CEO; the question is finding a CEO who can keep Twitter alive."
