Musk searches for new Chief Executive Officer of Twitter

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (NBC) - Twitter owner and CEO Elon Musk is reportedly searching for a new CEO of the company.

That's according to sources who tell CNBC the search has been ongoing.

This started before musk posted an informal poll on Sunday, asking Twitter users if he should step down as head of the company.

A majority of the 17 million respondents voted for musk to leave his post.

He said he would abide by the results of the poll.

Musk, who acquired the company for $44 billion in October, has previously said his position as CEO would be temporary.

However, on Sunday, he wrote in a separate tweet that there is "no successor."

Musk did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
