    Twitter Engineer Publicly ‘Fired’ After Trying to One-Up His Boss, Elon Musk

    Published on

    It depends on the workplace as to how well a worker can argue with the boss, but in light of what transpired on Sunday and Monday, it would be safe to infer publicly opposing Twitter CEO Elon Musk is not a good strategy in terms of job security.

    All of this transpired over the course of many hours on Twitter, starting with Musk apologizing for how slow Twitter was in some nations before turning into the spectacle of Twitter engineer Eric Frohnhoefer arguing against Musk.

    Musk concluded by adding, “He’s fired,” a Muskian take on former President Donald Trump’s catchphrase from “The Apprentice.”

    The Verge has an explanation for people who are unclear about the meaning of the technobabble.

    The article stated that Musk’s apologies “implied that the poor performance is because the app does over 1,000 ‘poorly batched’ remote procedure calls to load the home timeline — basically saying the app has to reach out to other servers a bunch of times and wait for a response for each request.”

    Frohnhoefer, contradicting those who advised it was not the best course to take, not only objected but went on to elaborate on how incorrect the boss was.

    Then, in front of everyone, Frohnhoefer and Musk argued about the nature and scope of the issue. At one point, Musk questioned the developer about his efforts to address a Twitter on Android issue.

     

     

    “You probably don’t want this guy on your team,” one user wrote.

    Eventually, the debate came to a close, with two words from Musk.

    He’s fired

    More on this story via The Western Journal:

    Frohnhoefer noted that he has since received other employment offers.

    The episode left Twitter users debating the wisdom of what Musk did, with some saying, “This genius in action is rarely seen publicly,” and others less thrilled.

    Musk purchased Twitter late last month, and in that time had fired about half of Twitter’s employees while shaking up much of Twitter’s internal operations. CONTINUE READING…
