Twitter Employee Gets Clapped After Openly Mocking New Company CEO On The Platform

A recent announcement from Twitter’s new CEO Elon Musk revealed, publically on the platform, that he had fired an employee of Twitter in the wake of them choosing to call him out on the platform.

Musk issued an apology this past Sunday for his new platform not being quite as fast as he actually wants it to be while using his app.

“I’d like to apologize for Twitter being super slow in many countries,” stated Musk. “App is doing >1000 poorly batched RPCs just to render a home timeline!”

As apparently an employee for the social media titan, Eric Frohnhoefer issued a response to the CEO, stating: “I have spent ~6yrs working on Twitter for Android and can say this is wrong.”

Musk directly responded to the post from the man just a little bit later, stating: “Then please correct me. What is the right number?”

“Twitter is super slow on Android,” he stated. “What have you done to fix that?”

Frohnhoefer chose to speak out once again, but this time it was another person claiming that it might not have been the best idea to publically mock the new CEO by stating Musk “should ask questions privately” by utilizing “Slack or email.”

Musk issued his own response to another account that highlighted the tweet from Frohnhoefer by simply stating, “He’s fired.”

Musk also went after another tweet this past weekend from someone who was previously an executive at the company who claimed that Musk had not been telling the truth at all about the real amount of money the food was costing the company.

A report from The New York Times stated this past week that Musk previously had “plans to begin making employees pay for lunch — which had been free — at the company cafeteria.”

Musk stated previously that it was quite “bizarre” that the platform was spending quite so much for the employee’s food “given that almost no one came to the office.” “Estimated cost per lunch served in past 12 months is >$400,” he concluded.

One Tracy Hawking, a former executive for Twitter, issued a response to the tweet from Musk by stating: “This is a lie. I ran this program up until a week ago when I resigned because I didn’t want to work for @elonmusk For breakfast & lunch we spent $20-$25 a day per person. This enabled employees to work thru lunchtime & mtgs. Attendance was anything from 20-50% in the offices.”

“False,” shot back Musk. “Twitter spends $13M/year on food service for SF HQ. Badge in records show peak occupancy was 25%, average occupancy below 10%. There are more people preparing breakfast than eating breakfast. They don’t even bother serving dinner, because there is no one in the building.”
