I would love to be a fly on the wall - Twitter

| No Comments

Going to be some interesting times in the next 60 days.  From FOX Business:

Elon Musk fires Twitter’s top brass after closing $44 billion deal
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has fired several top Twitter executives after officially taking control of the company Thursday evening.

A source with knowledge of the matter told FOX Business that Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal, CFO Ned Segal, and Vijaya Gadde, head of legal policy, trust, and safety were fired. Musk had accused the three of misleading him and investors over the number of fake accounts on the platform.

And that was just the amuse-bouche:

Musk previously said he had plans to cut Twitter's staffing from about 7,500 to around 2,000 employees, a nearly 75% decrease.

The core application is already coded.  How many people do they need to maintain and upgrade it?  Not like there are going to be any new operating systems anytime soon - an app for iOS, an app for Android, Windows and Linux and you have 99.999% of the market (a few OS/2 stragglers out there).  Figure 100 coders.  Maybe another 30 test monkeys. 50 people part-time for localization (other languages).  100 admin.  100 ancillary (graphic design, marketing, accounting, legal)
Leaving it at 2,000 employees is more than generous.

UPDATE:  Found from another source that one of the three: Vijaya Gadde - was the person who permanently banned President Trump in 2020. She was also the one responsible for the censorship of the New York Post's Hunter Biden Laptop story when it broke in 2020. Stupid moves.  Don't let the door hit 'ya where the good Lord split 'ya...
