After thousands of representatives left the social media firm Twitter, Elon Musk is now left with insufficient staff and is looking for any employees at the organization who knows how to code.
He sent a message to the Twitter team asking the staff who had the option to accomplish the technical work. As indicated by an internal report, Musk asked employees if anyone who “actually writes software” requested to meet with him.
“Anyone who actually writes the code for the software, please report to the 10th floor today at 2 p.m.,” he wrote in an email sent to staff on Friday. He also said he wanted “a bullet point summary of what your code commands have achieved over the past 6 months, with 10 screenshots.”
Elon Musk tried to cooperate with people working remotely. “If you are working remotely, please email the request below and I will try to talk to you via video,” he wrote in another email. Can’t physically reach Twitter HQ or have a family emergency are excused. These will be the short interviews that allow me to better understand the Twitter tech stack.”
He added that he would appreciate it if employees would travel to San Francisco to meet face to face, letting them know that he would be at the headquarter till midnight and “back again the next morning”.
Aside from the staff members fired by Musk, several employees at Twitter left after Muks said they would either have to go “hardcore” or leave with 90 days’ severance pay. Nearly 2,000 employees at the company decided to leave instead of committing to the CEO’s Elon Musk “Twitter 2.0”.
The emails are evidence of the chaos at Twitter since Musk took office this month. Sources said that some departments of the company are without employees. The Communications departments, recruiting, finance, and accounting departments were the most affected.
He has taken a number of controversial actions, triggering hashtags such as “#RIPTwitter” predicting that Twitter will soon end.
