Elon Musk says only paying Twitter users will take part in major polls

Elon Musk said he will only allow paying Twitter Blue subscribers to vote in future polls on how his $44 billion social media giant is run – as he speculated that a Deep State “bot army.” “He could have stood behind the results of a call to descend.

More than 24 hours after the poll closed early Monday, Musk, 51, has yet to directly address the vote, which called for him to “step down as head of Twitter” after earlier vowing to “commit to the results.” to hold this poll”.

However, he responded to a series of tweets suggesting the outcome had been unfairly influenced by bots, calling the theory “interesting”.

Notorious internet entrepreneur Kim Dotcom told Musk that it was “imprudent to do a poll like this when you’re now the No. 1 enemy in the deep state.”

“You have the biggest bot army on twitter,” he wrote.

“Let’s clean up this poll and then do it again,” Dotcom tweeted, saying he hopes the poll really is “a honeypot to catch all the deep state bots” and “kill them all at once.”

“Interesting,” Musk replied, same response as back then someone else asked: “Did bots brigade the Elon poll yesterday?”

The Tesla mogul later agreed to a policy change when a user told him that “blue subscribers should be the only ones who can take policy-related polls.” We actually have skin in it.”

“Good point,” replied Musk. “Twitter will make this change,” he said.

The Twitter Blue subscription, which costs $8 a month for the key verification tick, was one of the moves that sparked outrage from some users after Musk bought the platform in late October.

Musk didn’t indicate that fear of bots would lead him to contest the decision he had promised to abide by. More than 17.5 million users voted, with 57.5% calling for his resignation.

His silence meant it wasn’t immediately clear when he would step down – a move that could be delayed by his announcement that “there is no successor”.

“No one wants the job that can actually keep Twitter alive,” he tweeted. “The question isn’t finding a CEO, the question is finding a CEO who can keep Twitter alive.”
