Even in his first two months at the helm of Twitter, Elon Musk said he messed up a few times while trying to shape the social media platform in his image. During an episode of the All-In podcast, Musk discussed the company’s business endeavors with other Silicon Valley investors David Sacks and Jason Calacanis. There he admitted his failures and promised quick changes for the better of the organization.
“My error rate in being the Chief Twit will be less over time, but in the beginning, we’ll make, obviously, a lot more mistakes because I’m new to … hey, I just got here, man,” Musk said. Musk deflected the question and referred to his long-term plans for Twitter when questioned about “negative feedback about quick action without communication.”
“You’re going to swing for the fences, you’re going to strike out a bit more, but we’re going to swing for the fences here at Twitter, and we’re going to do it quickly,” the billionaire added. Musk acknowledged that the absence of a board of directors or shareholders made his existing authority over Twitter rather precarious.
“I guess I’m, in some ways, in a fortunate position where I don’t have to answer — it’s not public, and we don’t have a board, really,” he said. “I can take actions that are drastic. And obviously, if I make a bunch of mistakes, then Twitter won’t succeed, and that will be pretty embarrassing and sad.” Musk’s statements came a few days before Twitter had a significant outage.
There was a problem with Twitter’s desktop interface on Wednesday night, according to users. “Major modifications were made to the server architecture in the background. A quicker Twitter experience is desirable,” After the fact, Musk sent a tweet.
Changes come after Musk fired hundreds of workers. In his interview, the billionaire stated that the corporation has reduced its workforce of more than 7,000 people to 2,000. As a result of this personnel change, several former employees have begun to question the website’s continued existence.
After asking his followers for their opinion, Elon Musk said last week that he plans to resign soon, but the exact date is still unknown since he has to find “someone foolish enough to do the job.” Before, Sacks and Calacanis offered their services to take over as CEO, but it is unknown whether or not Musk would accept their offer.
Elon Musk said that he made several mistakes in his attempt to mold Twitter into his idealized image during his first two months as CEO. Musk shared the company’s business plans with other Silicon Valley investors David Sacks and Jason Calacanis on an episode of the All-In podcast. While there, he took responsibility for his mistakes and pledged immediate improvements to the company.
