Elon Musk fires Twitter employee who corrected him on the platform
The saga began on Sunday when
Frohnhoefer, who tweeted that he had spent six years working on Twitter for Android, retweeted Musk's statement saying it was incorrect.
"I have spent 6 years working on Twitter for Android and can say this is wrong," he had said.
Instead, he said that it makes around 20 background requests during startup, The Verge reported.
In his response, Musk said: "The fact that you don't realise that there are up to 1200 microservices being called when someone uses the Twitter app is not great."
Frohnhoefer disagreed again and tweeted that the "number required to generate the home timeline is closer to 200 than 1,200".
A Twitter user commented in the thread that Musk probably didn't want Frohnhoefer on his team after the developer tweeted that "maybe Musk should ask questions privately", to which the Twitter CEO replied: "He's fired."
