Musk to Step Down as Soon as He Finds the Perfect Fit

SAN FRANCISO: Abiding by his promise, Musk agreed to resign from his post as poll results didn’t favour him continue as the CEO of the microblogging platform.

“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 & servers teams,” Musk wrote on Twitter.

Roughly 20 minutes after he posed the question, as the ‘yes’ vote edged ahead, he added, “As the saying goes, be careful what you wish, as you might get it.” Responding to a comment, he said, “The question is not finding a CEO, the question is finding a CEO who can keep Twitter alive.”He added, “No one wants the job who can actually keep Twitter alive. There is no successor.”
