“He’s Fired” – Elon Musk Fires Disrespectful Employee on Twitter

Elon Musk fired a disrespectful employee on Twitter on Monday.

On Sunday Elon Musk apologized for Twitter being slow in some countries.

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

A Twitter engineer who has spent 6 years working on Twitter for Android publicly called out Musk in a tweet.

Instead of privately addressing this with Elon Musk, the Twitter engineer blasted his boss on Twitter (not a good idea).

Elon Musk responded to the Twitter engineer.

“Then please correct me. What is the right number?” Elon Musk said.

“Twitter is super slow on Android. What have you done to fix that?” Musk said in a follow up tweet.

A fellow techie warned the Twitter engineer to take the issue with Musk privately rather than attack his boss publicly.

“I have been a developer for 20 years. And I can tell you that as the domain expert here you should inform your boss privately.” the techie warned.

“Trying to one up him in public while he is trying to learn and be helpful makes you look like a spiteful self serving dev.” he said.

The Twitter engineer remained defiant and said Elon Musk was in the wrong and should have been the one who asked him questions privately over Slack or email.

A random Twitter user tagged Elon Musk and said: “@ElonMusk with this kind of attitude, you probably don’t want this guy on your team.”

Musk fired the guy on Twitter: “He’s fired”

The fired Twitter engineer responded by saluting Elon Musk.
