Space Karen Plays Charades, Press Falls For It

The Twitter Fail Whale

Space Karen posted one of his stupid polls asking the Twitterers if he should step down as the CEO. Axios reports the results:

A majority of respondents — 57.5% — to a Twitter poll posted by Elon Musk on Sunday said that he should “step down as head” of Twitter.

Why it matters: His potential resignation as the head of Twitter could end one of the most chaotic and controversial tenures ever for a CEO of a major U.S. company.

Details: The poll, which launched Sunday at 6:20pm ET, concluded with a majority of the more than 17.5 million respondents saying Musk should step down.

Tech journalist Dan Gillmor translates what it really means:

I think Gillmor has it right, it just abstracts one layer of the madness that will continue, and Axios is already breathlessly reporting on this.

    I feel like it’s pretty damn obvious what’s happening here. The guy is miserable but he can’t quit or he’ll be embarrassed. So he posts this poll and now he can justify quitting because people “didn’t appreciate him.” (The “careful what you wish for” follow-up post reinforces that). Then he can use his power behind the scenes to diminish the quality of the service to punish people for being so ungrateful, instead of just copping to the fact that he is in way over his head and could use some help.

    C’mon, I know at least half of you have been in relationships with this dude before.

    That or he’ll claim the polling machines were rigged thus null and voiding the whole thing and then pretend lt didn’t happen.

      Nailed it.

      “After being humiliated by his Twitter poll, Elon is now changing who can participate in Twitter polls relating to Twitter policy so that only people who give him $8 can participate.”

      Like any election for a fascist, results are only valid when they win.

        Allegedly, he got the idea from someone who tweeted it, calling it “skin in the game”.
        So maybe we have a sock puppet called @unfilteredboss1
        You know, if anyone really cares.

    His potential resignation as the head of Twitter could end one of the most [publicly] chaotic and controversial tenures ever for a CEO of a major U.S. company.

     Publicly should be bolded 
    

    Too bad he would never pick a CEO who would sooth the troubled waters that roil around any narcissist. Allegedly, such a layer of sanity between Space Karen and the actual actions taken on his behalf has rendered most of his endeavors profitable.
