Elon Musk polls to ‘convert Twitter’s San Francisco HQ to homeless shelter’

Elon Musk, the tech billionaire who recently joined Twitter’s board of directors, has asked the company’s followers if the company’s San Francisco headquarters should be converted into a homeless shelter.

The Tesla CEO asked Twitteratis in a series of polls on the microblogging site whether Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters should be converted to a homeless shelter because “no one shows up anyway.”

“Convert Twitter SF HQ to homeless shelter since no one shows up anyway,” Musk wrote on the platform.

The poll received over 10 lakh votes in about 9 hours, and more than 90% of users voted ‘Yes’ on the ongoing poll.

However, in response to a user’s post: “True. Also, convert the CEO’s office into a master bedroom “..

Meanwhile, another user commented, “I believe you intend to run in the 2024 election. Is it Y or N?”

Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal recently announced that Musk has been appointed to the platform’s board of directors.

Musk, who paid nearly $3 billion for a 9.2 percent stake in the microblogging platform, is barred from purchasing more than 15% of Twitter’s stock.
