Elon Musk, the new owner of Twitter, has been vindicated in his decision to terminate key leaders at the mammoth social media company as part of his efforts to create a cancel-free, bias-free platform conducive to the open exchange of thoughts and opinions.
Though Twitter leaders claimed little if any bias and that they only blocked material that was a clear and present danger to the community, Elon has verified that is not the case and went public with the news on Sunday.
Over the weekend, Musk posted what are purportedly internal Twitter communications from Yoel Roth, the now-former head of safety and integrity at the company.
Musk claims that the posts prove Twitter’s leadership (and company attorneys) failed to disclose evidence requested by the court — evidence that apparently supports Elon’s claim that Twitter misrepresented itself and, therefore, he should not be bound to fulfill his obligation to purchase the company.
The Tesla, SpaceX, and Twitter CEO was not slow to disclose the truth and name names:
Musk called out the corporate law firm that represented Twitter during the proceedings, Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, implying they are guilty of not being forthright to the court.
In another post that Musk found incriminating, Roth, the former head of integrity at Twitter, suggested “he could accuse an apparent Twitter employee identified as ‘Amir’ of having falsified his ‘objectives and key results,’ or “OKRs,” a metric used by technology companies such as Twitter to outline goals and assess outcomes,” according to the Western Journal.
Musk noted that Roth’s actions were malicious and strategic. Interestingly, in a post, Roth acknowledged his actions were wrong and that Musk was correct in his claims regarding Twitter’s executives.
“Literally doing what Elon is accusing us of doing,” Roth wrote.
Musk finalized the acquisition of Twitter last week. Within hours, Musk fired three key executives and pledged that Twitter was entering a new era and would overcome its reputation for censorship, bias and political discrimination.
According to Reuters, in addition to firing Roth, Musk fired Chief Executive Officer Parag Agrawal, Chief Financial Officer Ned Segal and legal affairs chief Vijaya Gadde.
Musk promised “more to come” in his tweet accusing Twitter’s previous executives of dishonesty.
