Elon Musk was downvoted by Twitter, now only paid users would be allowed to vote
It seems that people’s voice is only interesting as long as we agree with it.
Months ago, Elon Musk tried to back out of the Twitter acquisition tooth and nail, but a few weeks ago he finally changed his mind and took the lead, and since then persistent Twitter users have gone through a period of mind full of twists and turns.
The new CEO not only reorganized the company from the inside, but also seriously restructured the service itself: he allowed back many banned users, changed the moderation rules, and rethought the system for checking known users. This was followed by a great reaction, an innovation not considered, and the chaos only grew, and the advertisers slowly came out.
This culminated in Musk’s sudden move in the midst of the turmoil: he launched a vote of confidence in himself, in which he asked people if he should remain CEO of the company.
The result is known: 10 million people said yes to Elon Musk resigning from his leadership position on Twitter.
Should I resign as head of Twitter? I will stand by the results of this survey.

There is no complete agreement on what kind of result Musk was expecting: many believe that he just wanted to feed his own narcissism, while others believe that the Because of Tesla’s poor business performance he was looking for a good excuse to finally dance his way out of the whole Twitter business, as he had wanted to do before.
Many of his followers hinted that bots or some other attacker tampered with the vote (which is strange, since Musk previously stated that he was done with bots), and at the end of an exchange of messages with Kim Dotcom, he suggested that soon only bots will be able to vote on policy issues, who have subscribed to the Twitter Blue package:
Good point. Twitter will make that change.

Obviously, those who have been following the events of the last few weeks know that this does not mean anything specific about when and exactly in what form this will take effect, but apparently democracy and the freedom of the word just don’t want to work like that. Twitter was. his new leader imagined.
