Elon Musk tweeted a poll on Sunday asking users whether he should step down as the head of Twitter. Musk said he will abide by the results of the poll.

Users have until approximately 3 a.m. PST to vote.

In an earlier tweet, Musk stated that any major policy changes will be conducted via voting.

Earlier on Sunday, Twitter announced users will no longer be able to promote other social media accounts.

Musk previously said he would not ban the account, citing "free speech," but reversed course after the account was accused of "doxxing."

The EU has threatened sanctions against the platform, calling the banning of certain accounts "arbitrary."

Musk is also facing separate lawsuits regarding sexual discrimination from former employees after mass layoffs.
