Elon Musk would make Twitter better with an old enemy


The Twitter team confirmed with a surprising figure.

In the past few days, the topic of Twitter was either the ridiculous upheaval surrounding the Twitter Blue subscription, or the labor situation after the new owner Elon Musk fired thousands of people and then pushed others to leave by issuing an ultimatum.

Due to the decrease in the number of staff, some reports have even questioned the functionality of the social site, but the Business Insider based on his relatively recent report, Musk still has it still has 2,300 employees from the initial 7,500. And now the team is being expanded by a name that few would have expected.

Recently, George Hotz joined Twitter, who a few years ago spectacularly clashed with Musk and Tesla, which belongs to the tycoon’s interests. The case goes back to 2015, when Hotz, famous for hacking the iPhone, declared that he had developed a better self-driving system than what the electric car manufacturer had come up with.

Musk tried to entice her with a multi-million dollar job offer, but in the end they failed to reach an agreement, and Tesla also published a statement, essentially casting doubt on the hacker’s claims. Hotz later started a very successful company called Comma.ai, which an open source driving assistant compatible with multiple vehicles offers, but recently announced on GitHub that he will step away from the project for a while.

This is how Musk came into the picture again, whose name is now also on Twitter’s homepage. The short story is that Hotz added an approving comment to the billionaire’s leaked ultimatum, in which Musk demanded outstanding performance from all remaining employees.

“It’s the attitude that makes incredible things happen”

wrote the hacker on Twitterthen stated in another post that ready to undertake a 12-week “internship” at the platform, as long as they pay for housing in San Francisco. Although Musk did not publicly respond to the offer, Hotz recently reported that he had joined the social site, where he will try to improve the microblog’s search system.

The two old enemies therefore fell into each other’s arms under the wings of the blue bird, but many are skeptical that the hacker could succeed in 84 days, which a larger team could not solve for years.
