Elon Musk Trying to Bring Back Donald Trump. He started Twitter pool to get support of users.
Elon Musk launched a Twitter poll late Friday urging his followers to vote on whether or not to bring former President Donald Trump’s account back to the platform, with initial results showing nearly 60% saying yes.
“Vox Populi, Vox Dei,” Musk muttered. This is Latin for “the voice of the people is the voice of God.” Investigations he was open 24 hours a day.
Musk, Twitter’s new owner, said in May that he was revoking Twitter’s ban on Trump, whose account was suspended after last year’s attack on the US Capitol.
Earlier in the day, Musk said no decision had yet been made to revive Trump’s account, and Twitter was banned or banned, including satirical website Babylon Bee and comedian Kathy Griffin. It said it had restored several controversial accounts.
Musk’s decision to ask Twitter users for advice on who should join the platform is part of the company’s major restructuring, which includes massive job cuts.
In a memo on Friday to remaining employees that was seen by Reuters, Musk asked those who write software code to report to the 10th floor of Twitter’s headquarters in San Francisco by early afternoon.
The billionaire said in a follow-up email:
“If possible, I would appreciate it if you could fly to SF to be present in person,” adding he would be at the office until midnight and would return Saturday morning.
He asked employees to email him a summary of what their software code has “achieved” in the past six months, “along with up to 10 screenshots of the most salient lines of code.”
“There will be short, technical interviews that allow me to better understand the Twitter tech stack,” Musk wrote in one of the emails, and asked engineers to report at 2pm on Friday.
The emails came a day after hundreds of Twitter employees were estimated to have decided to leave the beleaguered social media company following a Thursday deadline from Musk that staffers sign up for “long hours at high intensity.”
The exodus adds to the change and chaos that have marked Musk’s first three weeks as Twitter’s owner. He has fired top management including former CEO Parag Agarwal and senior officials in charge of security and privacy, drawing scrutiny from a regulator. White House officials also said Twitter should let Americans know how the company protects their data.
Tech website Platformer reported Friday that Robin Wheeler, the company’s top advertising salesman and his manager, has been fired.
Wheeler, who told staff in a note last week that she was staying, tweeted on Friday:
“To the team and my clients…you have always been my first and only priority.
Twitter told employees on Thursday it would be closing its offices and restricting access to ID cards until Monday, two sources said. Reuters could not immediately confirm if its headquarters had reopened. did. As of Friday afternoon, the company began cutting off access to the company’s systems for some employees who declined Musk’s offer, three people told Reuters.
Another source said the company plans to shut down one of Twitter’s three main US data centers at his SMF1 facility near Sacramento to cut costs.
In his first email to Twitter employees earlier this month, Musk warned that Twitter may not be able to “ride out the coming recession.” “We are also changing Twitter’s policy to not allow remote work without specific exceptions,” he said.
Among the changes, Moody’s withdrew his B1 credit rating on Twitter, citing insufficient information to support the rating.
