Twitter implemented another coding freeze for engineers and coders. What’s coming next?
Elon Musk’s Twitter has implemented another coding freeze for engineers and coders, meaning that new products and features can’t be shipped unless they are critical, according to three people familiar with the plans. Twitter implemented a similar freeze when new owner Elon Musk took over in late October, which was explained as a way to keep employees from accidentally or intentionally altering the social media site without permission.
According to BloomBerg, the current action is slightly different, according to two persons, who requested anonymity because they aren’t authorized to speak publicly. In this case, employees can’t even write new code, the people say, meaning it is a more severe freeze than what the company has previously instituted. It’s unclear why, though the stoppage is expected to continue “until further notice,” one of the people said. Platformer previously reported the issue.
Musk took over Twitter on Oct. 27 and has fired half of the San Francisco-based company’s more than 7,000 employees, including almost all of its most senior executives. Some of those who remain have been critical of the chief executive officer on the service itself, and others worry that the job cuts could lead to outages on the social network or product glitches because there aren’t as many coders now on the workforce.
This Coding freeze for engineers is not the only thing going on with Twitter. Ever since Elon Musk brought the social media platform, things have been going upside down for the company.
Elon Musk fired a Twitter employee over the social media platform after he questioned Musk’s assessments! Earlier, Musk apologized for Twitter being ‘super slow’ across several countries. However, Eric Frohnhoefer, a developer who has been working in the company for several years, claimed that Musk’s assessments are basically wrong. Reactions started to pour on the conversation soon enough, after which Musk declared, “He’s fired”!
Elon Musk plays mean jokes on Twiterattis! A recent post on his platform said “Welcoming back Ligma & Johnson”, along with it he posted a picture with two young men beside him, who seemed like employees. But here’s the trick, the two gentlemen were just pranksters who helped Musk pull off a grand prank earlier, posing as employees who are fired from the company. This is all part of Elon’s plan to mock Twitter critics who demeaned his decision to lay off employees.
In recent weeks, Elon Musk executed a plan of massive layoffs and has fired a number of employees for correcting his public tweets or criticizing his leadership in the company’s Slack channels. On Tuesday, Musk went even further by publicly reveling in their dismissals. Twitter’s new owner described one fired employee as “a tragic case of adult-onset Tourette’s” in a reply to a tweet from @LibsofTikTok, an account run by a right-wing influencer whose anti-LGBTQ messaging was recently blamed for threats being sent to children’s hospitals. “I would like to apologize for firing these geniuses,” Elon Musk also sarcastically tweeted about his former employees. “Their immense talent will no doubt be of great use elsewhere.” These most recent issues appeared after Elon Musk fired off the following tweet criticizing Elon Musk’s Twitter and the job his employees had done.
“Btw, I’d like to apologize for Twitter being super slow in many countries,” Musk mentioned and continued to say “Apps are doing>1000 poorly batched RPCs just to render a home timeline!” Long-time Twitter engineers soon called out Musk, claiming the information he provided was false. “I have spent nearly 6yrs working on Twitter for Android and can strongly say this is wrong,” software engineer Eric Frohnhoefer tweeted, including Musk’s comment as a quote tweet. “Then please correct me. What is the right number?” Musk replied to that. He further added “Twitter is super slow on Android. What have you done to fix that?” In response, Frohnhoefer actually tweeted a lengthy and thought-out response to Elon Musk explaining the issue and what could be done.
