Elon Musk's recent purchase of Twitter and subsequent changes to the platform, including the introduction of new features such as Twitter Blue check, have garnered a lot of attention. One recent addition, the View Count option, caused a stir in the product design community due to its controversial design poll by Elon Musk.

After seeing this I thought it was hilarious. People in the comments are saying that Elon is allowing users to vote, but it's a very small amount of people, and in terms of product design, who said left or right was the best solution? On top of that, does left or right truly matter. I wonder if the poll actually had impact on the UI Design. I thought I'd share the Tweets I found most interesting that day.

Here are some replies to that poll

Some people even showed serious implications of the new feature.

I liked how this designer showed a possible solution
