Musk plans to restrict policy polls to Twitter Blue users

Elon Musk said on Monday that Twitter Inc will restrict voting on policy-related polls to paying Twitter Blue subscribers, on the same day that users voted decisively in a poll for Musk to step down as chief executive of the social media platform.

Musk responded to a suggestion from a Twitter Blue subscriber, who said only subscribers should get a vote on policy polls, with “Good point. Twitter will make that change”, without specifying when the change would come into effect.

Musk said on Sunday he would abide by the results of the CEO poll, but did not give details on when he would step down if the results said he should. He has not yet named a successor for the role.

Twitter re-enabled Twitter Blue sign ups earlier this month, with accounts for individuals getting a blue check, while gold and gray check marks will denote business and government accounts.

Twitter users voted in a poll for Musk to step down as chief executive of the social media platform, in a backlash against the billionaire less than two months after he took over.

About 57.5 percent votes were for “Yes”, while 42.5 percent were against the idea of Musk stepping down as the head of Twitter, according to the poll the billionaire launched on Sunday evening. Over 17.5 million people took part in the vote.

His latest claim may be a signal that he may change his mind on the outcome of the poll, which he had earlier promised to abide with.

The monthly subscription price for the service is $8 on the web and $11 on Apple devices, respectively.
