Sina Technology News On the morning of June 2, Beijing time, it is reported that Twitter employees have been worried about the recent troubles: the future bosses are constantly pointing at hand, and the current leadership is turbulent. Even recruitment that can inject fresh blood has been frozen. Essence In addition, some people were transferred to a new job because the company gave up a risky business.
People familiar with the matter said that Twitter's executives told employees that they would concentrate on the resources of long -term projects such as audio, newsletters, and community to concentrate on meeting short -term needs such as user growth and personalization.This means that many employees will be adjusted within the company's consumer product departments.
When the former product leader of Twitter was fired by CEO Parag Agrawal earlier this month, Jay Sullivan took the handsome seal of the department and was responsible for leading the reorganization. Employees are worried that layoffs are approaching, but Twitter insists that this plan has not yet been formulated.
"We will update the architecture and roadmap of the consumer product team to better focus on those areas that can have a positive impact on public opinion." Twitter spokesman said in the statement.
People familiar with the matter said the Twitter's internal team is still continuing to develop a modification button. People familiar with the matter revealed that the current plan is to release this update later this year. At that time, the user can modify the content within a certain period of time after the user releases the tweet. But others can still check the old tweets before the modification.
Now that Twitter was truly attracted to Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, it may be a few months. (The world's richest man agreed to acquire Twitter at a price of $ 54.20 per share at the end of April, and the corresponding market value was about $ 44 billion.) But the transaction has not been completed. Employees are also very tormented today. On the one hand, we must achieve the best financial results for shareholders and employees as much as possible, and on the other hand, they must endure the chaos in the waiting process.
Musk kept publishing tweets, and even often taunt Twitter employees, making them more mixed. The Slack group information inside Twitter shows that because Musk repeatedly criticized Twitter's policies in speaking and harassment, and also conflict with the chief lawyer of Twitter, who has a high prestige, conflicts, caused employees to conflict, resulting in employees He is quite small.
Musk even issued an email entitled "Can't Remote Works" to Tesla employees this week, giving employees more angry reasons. He said, "No matter who it is, if you want to work remotely, at least (note, I am talking about at least ') to work in the office for 40 hours a week, otherwise I will leave Tesla. Factory workers' requirements. "Such a policy contrary to the current position of Twitter -the latter is one of the famous technology companies that allow most employees to permanent home office.
Shortly after the Twitter's board of directors accepted Musk's acquisition invitation, a employee asked in the internal discussion: Someone really "was excited about Elon joining the board of directors"? This issue issued 3 days, attracting dozens of employees to publish 446 replies, most of them were negatively evaluated. Some people replied that Musk did not seem to realize the challenges facing Twitter in speech or establishment of social networks. But some people are really excited about Musk's acquisition, or at least think that his transactions are better than continuing the current development path or acquired by private equity companies.
Twitter executives explained at the recent employee meeting that the company's board of directors shoulders the trust responsibility and must find the optimal results for shareholders. A employee recently wrote in a post that Musk "listed this bastard as a trustee".
On May 19th, a news report said that Musk spent $ 250,000 with a former employee of SpaceX to settle the allegations of sexual harassment. This incident also caused a stir in Twitter's inner network.
"Around Musk's sexual harassment and sexual assault, will the Twitter leadership respond here?" A employee asked on Slack, "As a female employee of Twitter, I feel that this kind of silence is disheartened Cold. "People familiar with the matter said that Twitter executives have not communicated with employees on this matter.
When Musk recently published a tweet from the board of directors Jack Dorsey from the former CEO of Twitter, it also added a somber paragraph in it, as if it was to ridicule the recent sexual harassment news. In the response, Duoxi used a horse's emoji, which seemed to be revealed in the news report that Musk promised to buy a horse for the victim in exchange for pornographic massage services. This interaction also caused a lot of commotion in the Twitter's inner network. A employee said in a taunt: "Don't everyone feel proud?"
What makes employees confused is not just the reorganization of the company that may come at any time, but also Musk's elusive tweets that may have the impact. In fact, Twitter also frozen recruitment in order to cope with the turbulent economic situation, and adopted each of each of them. Cost compression measures in order to stabilize the business. They even canceled the admission notice.
For example, an employee who was preparing to work from the Bay Area to the Twitter Mexico City Branch found that he was withdrawn 4 days before he was about to set off, but the admission notice was withdrawn. This made him very passive, so he had to quickly find his original work. And his good vision for Twitter completely disappeared overnight.
"I said to lawyer Twitter,‘ Do n’t tell me the future. Do n’t think about me in the future. ’” He said, “I never want to hear the news of Twitter.”
