Elon Musk Fires Twitter Employees For Slack Criticism, Proceeds To Mock Them – SlashGear
Musk is known for making light of serious situations by posting memes and cracking jokes on his Twitter. Apparently, this response doesn’t just apply to lawsuits and federal investigations. Musk responded to screenshots of an expletive-laden batch of screenshots showing a former employee quote tweeting him, criticizing the layoffs, and then responding to her subsequent firing. Referencing the colorful choice of language the former employee used, Musk tweeted: “A tragic case of adult onset Tourette’s.” Musk also responded to a tweet accusing him of firing multiple employees for posting messages critical of both him and the platform on Slack with a faux apology which read: “I would like to apologize for firing these geniuses. Their immense talent will no doubt be of great use elsewhere.”

Despite his recent crackdown on parody accounts, Musk has also responded to a tweet from Founders Fund vice president Mike Solana in which Solana pretends to be a disgruntled laid-off employee who put in a decade of “relentless work adding an additional 140 characters to tweets,” only to be fired for calling Musk a very nasty name. Musk responded with “The injustice of it all,” though some accounts seem to have taken the tweet seriously and may have proved Musk’s point about the need for parodies to be clearly marked.
We’re not even three weeks into Musk’s takeover of the platform, and the situation can fairly be described as “chaotic.” The firings, rule changes, and strange demands seem to be far from over, and nobody really knows what the situation will be like in a week’s time, never mind long term. As far as predictions from people who are in the know go, Musk did mention there is a possibility the platform could go bankrupt at some point next year.
