On Tuesday, Elon Musk announced he would be stepping aside as Twitter’s CEO.

Earlier this week, Musk released a poll on Twitter, asking users if he should remain as head of the social media platform. In that same tweet, he said, “I will abide by the results of this poll.”

After 12 hours, and over seventeen million votes, 57.5% said Musk should set down.

On Tuesday, Musk said he is looking for someone to replace him. And once that person is in place, he will remove himself as Twitter CEO.
