A recent survey by HarrisX found that 61% of Twitter users in the United States and 53% of American adults aged 18 or older believe that Elon Musk should continue as Twitter CEO.
The poll, conducted among 1,028 adults and 429 Twitter users in the United States from December 18-19, 2022, had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points among the general population and 5 percentage points among Twitter users.
The poll’s results contradict the results of a previous survey conducted by Elon Musk on Twitter and provide a statistically relevant representation of what Americans and Twitter users think of Musk’s leadership.
According to Dritan Nesho, CEO of HarrisX and chief researcher, “a majority would like Mr. Musk to remain on as head of Twitter, with over 6 in 10 Twitter users expressing that sentiment.” The poll was conducted independently of Twitter or any Elon Musk-related organizations.
Musk’s takeover of Twitter has been met with both excitement and skepticism. Many are excited to see what he will bring to the table as the head of the social media giant. Musk is renowned for being innovative and forward-thinking; many believe he will bring these qualities to Twitter.
He has made several modifications to the platform, including introducing new features and expanding Twitter’s advertising capabilities.
However, some are concerned about Musk’s takeover of Twitter. Some have raised concerns about his tendency to make controversial statements on the platform and worry that his leadership could lead to further polarization and conflict on the site.
Others are concerned about potential conflicts of interest, as Musk’s companies could benefit from his control of Twitter.
As the dust settles on Musk’s takeover of Twitter, it remains to be seen how he will navigate the challenges and opportunities of leading such an influential platform. One thing is sure: the next chapter of Twitter’s history will be closely watched by users, analysts, and the media.
