Disappointed with the decision?

Elon Musk announced this morning (Tuesday) that from now on Twitter will limit votes on policy changes to paying subscribers (with a blue verification badge).

This, after a survey he published yesterday (Monday) in which he asked if he should give up the CEO of the social network. Its results showed that out of the 17.5 million votes, 57.5% of the respondents would like him to retire, while only 42.5% were against the idea.

"Should I take a step Back?" asked Musk in front of his 122 million followers. "I am committed to the result." Then, with the publication of the disappointing results, the billionaire responded to a tweet by a user with a blue V, who suggested that only paying subscribers could vote in polls that would determine the fate of the platform, and wrote: " Good point.

Twitter will make this change."

Alongside this, the social network announced yesterday on the official support account ("Twitter Support") that it will remove accounts created solely for the purpose of promoting other social platforms, and content containing links.

The list of those platforms included Facebook, Instagram, and other social networks.

However, the Chinese social network TikTok was not included in the list.

After several hours - the tweet was deleted without any explanation.

Good point.

Twitter will make that change.

Much criticism has been leveled at Musk since he first presented his desire to acquire the social network.

After a legal battle, the businessman, who also owns Tesla, obtained control of Twitter in exchange for $44 billion.

Since then, there have been several storms on the network, for example after the account of a young man dedicated to tracking Musk's private jet was blocked.
