New majority Twitter shareholder Elon Musk issued a poll to his millions of followers on the social media platform on Saturday, asking if he should transform the company’s Silicon Valley headquarters into a homeless shelter. 

In the post, Musk – who purchased a 9.2 percent stake in the social media giant earlier this week and was subsequently named to the company’s board of directors – seemingly took aim at the company’s lax remote working policies, saying he came up with the plan ‘since no one shows up anyway.’
