Elon Musk Fires Top Engineer At Twitter

(Presidentialwire.com)- There’s trouble at Twitter. Reportedly, when the disgruntled employees enter the San Francisco headquarters, they ask, “where are you interviewing?” and the second question is, “where do you have offers?”

Zoë Schiffer and Casey Newton, two writers from Platformer, dove headfirst into Twitter 2.0 on Thursday and documented an extraordinary story about Elon Musk and Twitter.

According to the articles written by the journalists, Musk allegedly called a meeting of his surviving top employees and wanted to know why his engagement had dropped so drastically.

Twitter owner and billionaire Elon Musk dismissed one of the “company’s two surviving primary engineers” after the engineer indicated that his engagement on the site had declined not because of a malfunction but due to the public’s decreased interest. The engineer indicated to the billionaire that the decrease in interaction was natural and tracked by overall apathy connected to him.

This incensed Musk.

According to several different individuals who have firsthand knowledge of the meeting, he remarked that the explanation was “ridiculous.”  “I have over 100 million followers, and I’m only getting tens of thousands of impressions,” Musk exclaimed.

Along with a Google Trends graphic, employees presented Elon Musk with internal statistics about the level of interaction with his account. They informed him that Musk’s popularity had “peaked” the previous April, as evidenced by a score of “100” in the relevant search rankings. As of right now, he has a score of nine.

According to the explanation provided in the Platformer piece, engineers have previously studied if Musk’s reach had been intentionally limited in any way, but they discovered no indication that the algorithm was prejudiced against him.

As soon as the engineer approached, Musk yelled, “You’re fired, you’re fired,” thus ending the conversation with the messenger.

In addition, the piece provides a wealth of information on the depths of misery that have permeated the social media firm ever since Musk’s takeover.

The report states, “The 8th floor is still filled with mattresses, and staff needs to request them in advance,” citing an exhausted employee who said, “Most weeknights, they are completely occupied.”
