Three more top executives are out at Twitter amid Elon Musk’s bid to purchase the tech platform.
Twitter Inc. is losing three more senior employees, including two vice presidents, a reflection of the uncertainty inside the social media company as staffers wait for Elon Musk’s $44 billion acquisition to close.
Ilya Brown, a VP of product management; Katrina Lane, VP of Twitter Service; and Max Schmeiser, head of data science, are all leaving the company, according to internal memos described to Bloomberg. All three chose to exit on their own, according to the memos.
Last Thursday Twitter fired two senior executives amid Elon Musk’s buyout of the tech giant.
Bruce Falck, Twitter’s revenue and product lead and Twitter general manager, Kayvon Beykpour were fired.
One of the executives was on paternity leave when Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal told him he was fired.
Twitter is facing potentially devastating lawsuits for claiming less than 5% of its users were fake or bots in its filings with the SEC. To report lies to the SEC is enough to take down any company and cause it to go bankrupt. If investors make decisions based on a company’s financials, which they do, if found to be false, a company could be taken out.
The Twitter executives quit as Project Veritas released undercover video of a senior Twitter engineer lashing out at Elon Musk and admitting the tech giant doesn’t believe in free speech.
Elon Musk saw Project Veritas’ undercover video of the Twitter engineer bragging about censoring conservatives and discussing the internal revolt against Musk.
“Is this legit?” Musk said in a tweet responding to the undercover video.
Is this legit?
