During the tail end of this move down, Elon Musk polled Twitter asking whether he should resign as company CEO. The poll closed with over seventeen and a half million votes cast, showing 57.5% wanted him to step down.

Holding to his word and abiding by the result of the poll, on Dec. 21, Musk confirmed stepping down once a “foolish enough” replacement is found. He said he would continue overseeing the software and server operations after standing down.

“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.

Previously, Greg had signaled his interest by reaching out to Musk in his trademark tweeting style.

Dear Elon,

It’s me, greg. Feel free to dm me if you have any questions on future policies or if you need help hiring a Twitter CEO (or want me to be CEO).

Love, greg”
