At least five employees have been laid off from the private technology company SpaceX, according to two people familiar with the matter, the British Guardian said.
The letter said: “SpaceX must swiftly and unequivocally separate itself from Elon’s personal brand, keeping all executives responsible for making the company a great place to work for all, and defining and responding uniformly to all forms of unacceptable behavior.”
SpaceX President Gwynne Shotwell sent an e-mail in response to the situation, stating that the company had investigated and “terminated the employment of a number of employees who were associated with the letter,” the New York Times reported.
On Friday, Elon Musk had a video conference with Twitter staff, in which he emphasized that if they did not work as he had imagined, they would be fired. He also supported employees in working from home, which he criticized in early June
He also added: “I am definitely not for actions that are crazy. I am for things that build a successful company and improve it. ”
In his speech to the company, which lasted about three-quarters of an hour, Musk also addressed the fact that Twitter should work on transparency in the future. According to him, this is the key to trust with users. Due to the large number of fake and robotic accounts, he suggested that the company start verifying the user’s identity via Twitter Blue in the future.
The richest man on the planet has still not announced whether he has decided to buy most of the shares on Twitter.
