Elon Musk has done many great things and those who try to do dishonesty with him will definitely be punished. Elon Musk spent a lot of time tinkering with his latest toy, Twitter. By mostly tinkering, I mean poking around and breaking things.
First he fired most of the senior leaders who knew how things worked. After this they laid off half the employees. After this, he asked the rest of the employees to take an oath to be very strict, otherwise he would consider their resignation. Reports suggest that a third of the remaining employees said ‘no thanks’.
He eventually introduced code reviews, which resulted in more employees being fired because their submissions were not up to Elon Musk’s extremely high standards for code screenshots. However, that doesn’t seem to be what he’s been doing lately.
Elon Musk spent much of last week talking about the release of what is known as the Twitter Files. This is a series of threads by a select group of journalists releasing inside information about the company’s operations over the past five years.
Those threads include internal emails about policy discussions and decisions to moderate content. They also included the personal email address of Jack Dorsey, a current member of Congress and founder and former CEO of Twitter.
This weekend, however, Elon Musk sent an email to his remaining employees that leaking confidential information will not be tolerated. Indeed, the world’s richest man says he will sue any employee who shares information with the press.
