Voting ended, in which Twitter users had to answer Elon Musk's question whether the entrepreneur should step down as head of the company.
As a result, 57.5% of users voted for him to leave the position. 42.5% were against. More than 17 million people took part in the survey.
The vote was arranged by Elon Musk himself on his page. He promised that he would do as users decide.
On October 27, Musk bought Twitter. Immediately after that, the previous CEO of the company Parag Agrawal and its financial director Ned Segal, as well as half of the employees, were fired.
In mid-December, Twitter suspended the accounts of several well-known journalists from major American media outlets, including Ryan Mack of The New York Times, Drew Harwell of The Washington Post, and Doni O'Sullivan of CNN. Each user's page posted a message stating that accounts were suspended due to a "violation of Twitter policies."
In a conversation with The New York Times, some of the blocked journalists said that in their accounts they criticized Musk or wrote about accounts that track private jets.
On December 14, Twitter blocked several accounts tracking the movements of American billionaires and Russian oligarchs. On the same day, the account of the author of some of these bots, a 20-year-old student from Florida, Jack Sweeney, was also blocked.
