استطلاع “استقالة” ماسك يعزز أسهم تسلا

By Duncan Mil

December 19, 2022 - قفزت أسهم تسلا بنسبة %4.8 بعد أن صوت مستخدمو تويتر لصالح تنحي إيلون ماسك عن دوره كرئيس لمنصة التواصل الاجتماعي التي صرفت انتباهه عن إدارة شركة السيارات الكهربائية.

“Should I step down as head of Twitter? I will abide by the results of this poll,” Musk tweeted to his 122.1 million followers on Sunday.

The poll closed on Monday morning, with 57.5% of the 17.5 million votes choosing “Yes,” and Tesla was up in pre-market trading.

If Musk heeds the vote, it will end 53 chaotic days at the helm. It has involved dismissing top executives, eliminating roughly half of its employees and losing advertising revenue.

Shares of the carmaker are down 60.7 per cent since Musk announced he had become Twitter’s largest shareholder in April and made a bid for the social media platform.

There is no straightforward replacement at Twitter after Musk fired almost all top-rank executives and roughly half of the workforce.

Musk tweeted after launching the poll that “No one wants the job who can actually keep Twitter alive. There is no successor -- and it has been in the fast lane to bankruptcy since May.”

Twitter has almost $13 billion of debt in the hands of seven Wall Street banks that have been unable to offload it to investors.
