(850 WFTL) — Elon Musk is asking Twitter users if he should step down as CEO of the social media company he purchased in October.

The billionaire posted a poll to Twitter Sunday night asking “Should I step down as head of Twitter?” with a “yes” and “no” option.

“I will abide by the results of this poll,” he added.

“Yes” votes were beating the “no’s” — accounting for nearly 58% of votes about an hour after he tweeted the poll to his 122 million followers.

“As the saying goes, be careful what you wish, as you might get it,” Musk added in a second, ominous tweet.

Musk took over as CEO of Twitter after ousting the former CEO Parag Agrawal shortly after he acquired the social media giant for $44 billion in October.
Meanwhile, Twitter is walking back a policy prohibiting users from promoting their accounts on several other major social media sites. Less than 24 hours after the policy was introduced, it was deleted. Instead, a company account @TwitterSafety, is running a poll asking users if creating accounts to promote other platforms should be banned.
