Shortly after facing major backlash over the introduction of a new policy that would see links to outside social media platforms banned on Twitter, Elon Musk posted a poll asking users to vote on whether he should continue as CEO. 57 percent of respondents voted that it was time for Musk to step down. Although it isn’t clear if Musk will actually step down, his Tesla shareholders are likely hoping he will.

The New York Times reports that Elon Musk’s Twitter has continued to have a dramatic few days over the past week. Breitbart News reported on the banning of the @ElonJet account, the subsequent banning of media figures that reported on the account ban, the abrupt shutdown of the Twitter Spaces feature, calls for Musk to step down as CEO of Tesla by the company’s third-biggest shareholder, and now the possibility of Musk stepping down as Twitter CEO.

Twitter recently introduced a new policy — that now may be removed or heavily modified — that would make it a bannable offense for Twitter users to share links and usernames from other social media platforms. This would mean that accounts with their Instagram account in their profile bio, or even a service like Link.Tree that allows content creators to list all the platforms they can be found on, would be banned from the platform.
