While the final details of awarding the process of taking over the Twitter platform by American billionaire Elon Musk have not yet been completed, the company announced the departure of two of its senior executives and the suspension of appointments and non-essential hiring at the present time.
A spokeswoman for the group explained that the head of consumption, Kavonne Bikbor, and the head of revenue-generating products, Bruce Falk, have left the company, according to Agence France-Presse.
“He asked me to leave”
In parallel, Bikbor, who specifically supervised the engineering, design and user service teams, confirmed in a tweet yesterday evening that it was not he who made the decision.
He added that the CEO of the group, Parag Agrawal, asked him to leave, after informing him that he wanted to take the team in a different direction, indicating that he was on paternity leave.
Interrupting my paternity leave to share some final @twitter-related news: I’m leaving the company after over 7 years.

In the same vein, in addition to the departure of these two officials, Twitter plans to cut spending starting this week.
Suspension of appointments and compensation
The company will suspend the majority of hiring and compensation, except for sensitive commercial positions, the spokeswoman said, noting that non-wage costs would be reduced “to ensure our responsibility and effectiveness.”
It is noteworthy that the board of directors of the social network was before the acquisition offer made by Musk, worth $ 44 billion, at the end of last April.
