Today’s Update From The Gong Show That Is Twitter… More Key Execs Leave As Kanye West Returns To The Platform

With all the chaos that Elon Musk is causing at Twitter, it is hard to keep track of everything that is going on. For example, I missed numerous departures over the last few days that I am pretty sure will hurt the company. Let’s start with Sarah Rosen who was the head of U.S. content partnerships at Twitter. And on the way out the door, she seems to take a shot at Elon Musk. You can judge for yourself:

Also exiting Twitter was Maggie McLean Suniewick, a former NBCUniversal exec who had just joined the company in June as VP of partnerships. She seemed to also take a shot at Musk. Judge for yourself:

Musk on the other hand has fired at least one exec. Robin Wheeler resigned last week but reportedly had been persuaded by Musk to return to the role. But then he apparently fired her on Friday:

She confirmed her departure later in the day:

Here’s the thing. You can’t run a company if you are firing your top talent, or they all leave. It’s just not a sustainable situation. But Elon doesn’t see it that way quite clearly.

But coming back to Twitter is the anti-semitic vocal artist Kanye West. He resurfaced with this Tweet:

At this point, Twitter is a mess where Elon Musk will let any racist, low life and insurrectionist onto the platform. And by the way, didn’t West buy Parler? What happened to that?

Meanwhile, over at Mastodon, here’s what things look like as of 8AM EST:

Looks like we’re seeing a spike in users going over to Mastodon today. I think it’s safe to say that Elon’s actions, decisions, and behaviour is responsible for driving people away from Twitter. Which is another problem for Elon to consider as he struggles with trying to keep his vastly overvalued $44 billion investment afloat.
