Twitter fires 50 more engineers over Elon Musk dissatisfaction with its code

After Elon Musk took office as Twitter CEO, he has laid off 7,500 employees to 2,700 in just three weeks. Although Elon Musk said in a company-wide meeting on Monday (21st) that layoffs have been completed, about 50 more engineers have been fired in recent days.

According to reports, a Twitter engineer received a notice of dismissal due to “unsatisfactory code” on Thursday (24th), pointing out that the round of dismissal was based on the results of Elon Musk’s previous code review. Twitter asked the engineers concerned to sign a severance agreement and waive their claims. They will receive 4 weeks of salary, but must leave the company.

The reporter Gergely Orosz of the report believes that Twitter’s move is very cruel, because the dismissed employees agreed to stay and participate in Elon Musk’s “Twitter 2.0”, and gave up the 3-month salary compensation for resignation. It is said that the engineer Ihara Ikuhiro who increased the Twitter character limit from 140 characters to 280 characters was also affected by the wave of dismissals.

The Verge pointed out that the engineers who were not fired also received emails on the same day, hoping that they would restore their trust in Twitter and show their contributions to the team, and asked them to send a code sample by email every week.
