"We recognize that many of our users are active on other social media platforms. However, we will no longer allow free promotion of certain social media platforms on Twitter," Twitter Support tweeted Sunday.

"Specifically, we will remove accounts created solely for the purpose of promoting other social platforms and content that contains links or usernames for the following platforms: Facebook, Instagram, Mastodon, Truth Social, Tribel, Nostr and Post," the post continued.

The policy will also ban third-party link aggregators, including linktr.ee and lnk.bio, it said, adding that it will also seek to remove users who try to circumvent the rules by spelling out “dot” and sharing screenshots of their handles on prohibited platforms, among other means to get around the restrictions.
And now Twitter has deleted the entire thread, wtf

Elon's obviously already found a replacement CEO to manage Twitter, and will be transitioning shortly.

Or as he puts it:

Pretty easy to use bots to skew it which way you like. But thats an interesting take as well.

He has someone he wants to take over and he knows the likely outcome of asking that question.
And if it does come back as no, then its his own validation.

My guess is that he's been told to get back to Tesla or else, and this is his attempt to maintain the illusion that he's in control. And a cringey edgelord.

Or he just Thanos snaps everyone that votes “Yes.”

Most likely outcome: Musk has already selected a CEO and the poll is just something to keep his ego in the news for another 48 hrs.

I'll try and find a source, but I swear I read something earlier that said he doesn't have anyone lined up.

HENCE WHY FOREVER ALONE
 
I watched an interview the other day where Elon basically says the CxO titles are all made up - that only Treasurer, Secretary, President (from memory) are real titles of a C-Corp, and there needs to be one Director. They can all also be the same person. Everything else is bollocks, and his official title at Tesla is "Technoking" just to show that it's all arbitrary.

So he might drop the title of CEO, but does that change anything since he still owns the platform? He didn't conduct a poll on whether he should sell it and/or give up control.

I present to you, the most pathetic man in the world...




Looks like we were all wrong, Musk honestly thought he was liked enough that the poll would be in his favour. Now he's gonna re-do it with only those simps who ponied up able to vote.

Tapbots just released Ivory for Mastodon, which means Mastodon just got a whole lot more attractive:
