Elon Musk Causes Twitter Executives to Leave Following Acquisition


One of the first moves of Twitter’s new owner Elon Musk was to let a few key people leave the social media platform.

Right after Elon Musk completed his multi-billion dollar Twitter buyout, he started an operation to re-organize the company’s structure, which appeared to have caused a few contradictions. According to sources close to the matter, Musk was motivated by frustration with Twitter’s policies and expressed that he would make the network a haven for “healthy, functioning free speech.”

Several Twitter executives, including Chief Financial Officer Ned Segal, Chief Marketing Officer Leslie Berland, and Vice President of Product Design Dantley Davis, have already left the platform. Twitter’s Chief Technology Officer Parag Agrawal and Chief Human Resources Officer Jennifer Christie have also stepped down from their positions.

These departures have raised questions about the company’s overall direction and whether this was part of Musk’s plan. In addition, during the early days of the buyout, Elon Musk was rumoured to lay off 75% of Twitter’s staff during his re-ordering efforts, but he then backed out of this statement.

It is unclear what the future of Twitter will look like under Musk’s ownership. It is possible that he will continue to make changes in order to make the platform more appealing to its users. For now, many of the former executives have not commented on their departures, but Musk is certainly determined to make his mark on the social media platform.
