Twitter engineering manager Jay Holler had an ugly public meltdown upon learning the news that free speech proponent Elon Musk was appointed to the Big Tech giant’s board.
OK, I’m radicalized now,” Holler said.
It turns out that he was radicalized a long time before Elon Musk showed up on the Twitter company scene. Holler even said that he was “broken” by the news, which apparently means he might have to treat all users more fairly and respectfully.
Holler had been following the news about Musk acquiring a 9.2% stake in Twitter worth nearly $3 billion. The big baller move put Musk as the single largest individual stakeholder, albeit considerably below a controlling stake at 40% of shares.
When Musk was announced by the CEO Parag Agrawal as a member of the Board, Holler ranked it as one of the worst tweets he had ever seen.
