Elon Musk announced on Tuesday that he would step down as CEO of Twitter once he finds a replacement.
Bad joke, com stunt or real advertising? Elon Musk at the head of Twitter would already be ancient history.
“I would step down as CEO as soon as I find someone stupid enough to take over my job! Then I’ll just run the software and server teams,” he tweeted.
I will resign as CEO as soon as I find someone foolish enough to take the job! After that I just want to run the software and server teams.

It is the first time Elon Musk has mentioned a possible resignation since a majority of Twitter users voted for his departure in a poll launched on Sunday by the Tesla boss.
The wind ?
The billionaire admitted he was very busy and said he would be looking for a new CEO for Twitter. However, he explained on Sunday that there was no candidate for his succession and that “no one (wanted) the position that (could) keep Twitter alive”. Which suggests another stroke of communication by the billionaire.
