Is Elon Musk a polarising figure? The Tesla CEO had a Twitter War with Parag Agrawal – the current CEO of Twitter. Given the current developments with the social media platform, as we all know some jobs comes up with big responsibility, let’s hope Agrawal doesn’t regret for taking the job at the 1st place.
According to news reports, three senior staff members are leaving the company voluntarily, that includes Ilya Brown, a VP of product management for health, conversation and growth; Katrina Lane, VP of Twitter Service; and Max Schmeiser, head of data science.
Twitter spokesperson has confirmed the departure of the three senior executive.
“We continue to be focused on providing the very best experience to the people on Twitter. We can confirm that they will be leaving Twitter for new opportunities. We are thankful for all of their hard work and leadership.”
Once Musk takes over the company, Agrawal will be next to leave company. By the look of things and new developments his not in a good books with the Tesla CEO.
“Some have been asking why a ‘lame-duck’ CEO would make these changes if we’re getting acquired anyway,” Agrawal wrote on Twitter. “While I expect the deal to close, we need to be prepared for all scenarios and always do what’s right for Twitter. I’m accountable for leading and operating Twitter, and our job is to build a stronger Twitter every day.”
Musk has already identified someone to lead the company once he takes the helm of the company.
Musk’s concerns: Spam accounts.
Twitter has a bot/spam problem and Musk thinks that the numbers might be higher than he originally thought.
The deal can’t move forward until there is clarity on the number of fake accounts on Twitter.
