    The problem was that they weren't very good at it?

    There was as never going to be a good outcome to this. It was like watching a slow motion train wreck, it was just a question of would the train explode in a ball of fire first, or jump the tracks and plummet from a bridge into the ocean.

    I do think the CFO and Gen Cons did a pretty damn good job getting Elon to walk in with a sink and (about?) $44B.

    I can understand he has a beef with the CEO/CTO and may be their policy / lobbying head... but 10/10 to their CFO and Gen Cons.
    jgl and Baklava like this.

    So on his 1st day at work, he fired the top guys he thot would have been the ones responsible for first raising a stink abt him irresponsibly tweeting to buy, then abt him actually buying, then abt him irresponsibly tweeting that hinted at buyers remorse, then abt him actually not wanting to buy and then insisting on the buy.. :p

    So cold but they must have expected this to happen..

    Not just expecting to be fired, I'd be hoping and praying ... I'd think they will be appropriately compensated, not like Elon wants to be hauled back into court.. or may be he does?

    We'll find out more the a spin-off mini-series which deals with this side show.

    AIUI it was always understood that the CEO, at least, was something of a caretaker - he was put in place less than a year ago, when Jack Dorsey stood down, and he was meant to be more of a 'keep things steady until we work out where we're going' sort of guy.

    Now the next question is, when will he make Twitter great again and allow Trump back in? Mid-term elections are very close…

    They got a decent payout ... probably more than what their stock options were worth over whatever their vesting periods are / were.

    The execs received handsome payouts for their trouble, Insider reports: Agrawal got $38.7 million, Segal got $25.4 million, Gadde got $12.5 million, and Personette, who tweeted yesterday about how excited she was for Musk's takeover, got $11.2 million

    I’d be excited for the takeover too!

    I totally can't see the point. Nothing positive will come out of that as I see it. He should focus on his cars and make them user friendly. Still can't see traffic data on the map. Seems he lost interest in that business.
