Billionaire Elon Musk confirmed on Tuesday he will step down as chief executive of Twitter once he finds a replacement who is "foolish enough". But he will still run some key divisions of the social media platform.

"I will resign as CEO as soon as I find someone foolish enough to take the job! After that, I will just run the software & servers teams," Musk wrote on Twitter.

The Twitter owner on Sunday asked users whether he should step down as CEO and said he "will abide by the results of this poll". The poll closed on Monday morning, and 57.5 per cent of the votes called for him to stand down.
