Twitter CEO Elon Musk announced on Twitter that he fired an employee at the company after the employee called him out publicly.
Musk tweeted an apology on Sunday for Twitter not being as fast as he wants it to be on the app.
“I’d like to apologize for Twitter being super slow in many countries,” Musk tweeted. “App is doing >1000 poorly batched RPCs just to render a home timeline!”
Eric Frohnhoefer, an apparent employee at the company, responded to Musk, writing: “I have spent ~6yrs working on Twitter for Android and can say this is wrong.”
Musk responded directly to Frohnhoefer a short time later, writing: “Then please correct me. What is the right number?”
“Twitter is super slow on Android,” he added. “What have you done to fix that?”
Frohnhoefer responded to another user who said that it was a bad idea to call out Musk publicly by saying Musk “should ask questions privately” by using “Slack or email.”
Musk responded to another account that pointed out Frohnhoefer’s tweets by saying, “He’s fired.”https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1592186302379982849
