CNBC and The Washington Post say Twitter’s greatest shitposter, Elon Musk, acquired the company. His party fired multiple shots.

Reuters reports Musk fired Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal and CFO Ned Segal. Musk sacked policy chief Vijaya Gadde. The New York Times confirmed general counsel Sean Edgett’s retirement. Insider says CCO Sarah Personette was sacked.
Segal $25.4 million,
Agrawal $38.7 million,
Gadde $12.5 million,
and Personette $11.2 million.
Musk abandoned his April Twitter acquisition bid in May. His second change of heart was a letter to the SEC on October 4. Musk talked with Twitter staff before his $44 billion acquisition and will address them on Friday.
Musk moved his deposition from late September to October 6th and 7th. He and his attorney agreed to attend the deposition days in advance. Unfortunately, Musk presumably deleted Signal messages. Musk secured a court injunction to delay the obligation to close the sale by October 28th.
Musk’s statements don’t ensure Twitter’s future. According to the Washington Post, Musk wants 75% of Twitter staff fired. Bloomberg reported that Musk tweeted that 75% was inaccurate. Twitter’s attorneys said Musk and Jason Calacanis discussed firing employees and compelling others to work.
“Day zero,” Calacanis texted Musk. “Sharpen your swords, guys,” Calacanis added because 20% of Twitter employees would leave preferably if pushed back to work. “My dream job is Twitter CEO,” Calacanis told Musk.
