Journalisterne Casey Newton og Zoë Schiffer skriver nogle af de mest indsigtsfulde artikler om tech – herunder #Twitter – og nedenstående er ikke en undtagelse.
Det lyder efterhånden som Tech-branchens version af “Der Untergang’ , når man læser om forholdene i Twitter 2.0 under Musk’s ledelse. Det er tydeligt i deres artikel: “Elon Musk fires a top Twitter engineer over his declining view count”
“We haven’t seen much in the way of longer term, cogent strategy,” one employee said. “Most of our time is dedicated to three main areas: putting out fires (mostly caused by firing the wrong people and trying to recover from that), performing impossible tasks, and ‘improving efficiency’ without clear guidelines of what the expected end results are. We mostly move from dumpster fire to dumpster fire, from my perspective.”
Musk’s product feedback, which comes largely from replies to his tweets, often baffles his workers.
“There’s times he’s just awake late at night and says all sorts of things that don’t make sense,” one employee said. “And then he’ll come to us and be like, ‘this one person says they can’t do this one thing on the platform,’ and then we have to run around chasing some outlier use case for one person. It doesn’t make any sense.”
Lige nu er det svært at se, at Twitter klarer skærene som andet end en ‘Mad Max’ skygge af sig selv med hyppige nedbrud og højreradikale på raids gennem brugernes feeds.
