Elon Musk still firing coders at Twitter amid Thanksgiving feasts

Elon Musk is still in the firing mode at Twitter amid the Thanksgiving fests, as several coders who were brought back after a massive layoff as part of a” knowledge transition”, are being shown the door again in the name of” law review”.

Ikuhiro Ihara, a highly-respected Twitter coder who made the transition from 140-character to 280-character be, has been fired unceremoniously.

” One of the people fired Musk’s rearmost purge was Ikuhiro Ihara, a largely- admired elderly software mastermind who helped lead the drive to expand tweets to 280 characters,” twittered Casey Newton of Platformer.

” Ihara fought relentlessly for 280 in the face of strong scepticism from top directors. Heco-authored the blog post explaining the value of 280 characters when it launched,” Newton said.

Tech writer Gergely Orosz said that the night before Thanksgiving, Twitter fired further software masterminds effective incontinently because their” law isn’t satisfactory” following the recent law review.

” Dozens of other inventors for performance warnings in their inboxes,” Orosz twittered.
” The stories get wilder. I can not emphasise how these are real people in tech. And yet, Musk and operation at Twitter treat them like cattle. Why fire someone, call them back telling them they’re’ critical’ also fire them again a many weeks latterly?” he posted.

A Twitter hand said that he was laid off from Twitter in early November and was told” I’ll admit 3 months of pay as severance.” ” I was called back shortly after that because they suppose I’m’ critical gift’ and was asked to do attestation and give’ law samples’. Last night, I was suddenly fired without any reason and was offered 4 weeks’ severance for subscribing release of claims agreement.

Any employment attorneys, please DM me if you can help. I’m on H1B and only have 60 days to find a new job during the leaves,” the hand posted on Twitter.

After sacking about 50 percent of its pool, Musk also fired workers who criticised his conduct either on Twitter or on internal messaging platform Slack and some were sacked just for retweeting posts slamming the new Twitter CEO.
