Elon Musk is firing Twitter employees even when they criticize him in private

After purging half of Twitter’s staff with a snap of his fingers and firing as many as 5,500 additional contract employees without so much as a goodbye, “free speech” maximalist Elon Musk is now additionally getting rid of anyone who dares criticize him, both on Twitter and even in the company’s private Slack.

Yesterday, Musk admitted to firing an engineer who attempted to correct him publicly on Twitter, and Eric Frohnhoefer wasn’t the last to go that way — Twitter software engineer Sasha Solomon also tweeted that she got “fired for shitposting” after a series of now-deleted tweets criticizing Musk, adding “kiss my ass Elon.”

But many employees are reportingly being fired just for criticizing Musk in the company’s private Slack.

We can’t confirm that his Twitter account was previously set to private, but he’s not the only one eyeing Slack. Gergely Orosz tweeted that around 10 people have been fired for speaking up internally in a Slack watercooler channel — and Platformer’s Casey Newton has sources that say the number might be closer to 20.
