Mike Cvet , technical leader of the infrastructure department and described as Twitter's highest-level engineer, said that the team responsible for delivering more than 10 million tweets a day would be reduced to about two people.
It's hard for people on the outside to appreciate how nonsensical this selective “policy” enforcement is. The team responsible for the serving of 10MM+ tweets / second for internal and user-facing use cases is down to like 2 people. Good luck shipping basically… anything? https://t.co/mQoHvrM0dx— Mike Cvet (@mikecvet) November 15, 2022
In response to the tweet reporting this matter, Mr. Mask replied, 'I apologize for dismissing these geniuses. Their immeasurable talent will surely be of great help elsewhere.'

According to Casey Newton of the news site Platformer , Twitter has long had an internal culture of outright dissent, and Musk's appointment as CEO doesn't mean that internal norms have changed. Therefore, this dismissal was sudden.

No internal codes of conduct have changed since Elon took over.
Mr. Musk recently dismissed an employee who pointed out that his `` Twitter app is slow '' was a mistake . Regarding these moves, Tommy Vietre, a spokesman for the Obama administration, said, ``It's interesting that someone like Elon Musk, who claims to protect free speech, is actually as sensitive as a snowflake. ” points out.
Funny how guys who claim to be brave defenders of free speech like @elonmusk are actually delicate little snowflakes https://t.co/bp7pzWxCbM— Tommy Vietor (@TVietor08) November 15, 2022
