How did all of it begin?
On November 13, Musk in a tweet stated that he wish to apologise for “Twitter being tremendous sluggish in lots of international locations.” The rationale he gave was that the app was doing lower than 1000 “poorly batched” distant process calls to load the house timeline. Musk implied that the app needed to attain out to far too many servers and it was delaying the loading of homepage. To which, Eric Frohnhoefer publicly referred to as out Musk’s mistake and stated, “I’ve spent ~6yrs engaged on Twitter for Android and may say that is mistaken.”
Musk immediacy replied and stated, “Then please right me. What’s the proper quantity?”, earlier than including in one other tweet, “Twitter is tremendous sluggish on Android. What have you ever finished to repair that?”
Two hours later, the engineer replied to Musk saying, “We now have finished a bunch of labor to enhance efficiency and we discovered that it correlates nicely with growing UAM and Advert spend. Agree, there’s loads of room for efficiency enhancements on Android. Nevertheless, I don’t suppose the variety of requests is the first challenge.”
The dialog between Musk and the engineer went on for fairly some time. Somebody within the Twitter thread requested whether or not Frohnhoefer ought to haven’t confronted Musk on Twitter concerning the challenge. Musk merely stated, “He’s fired”. Frohnhoefer later did tweet that he was “positively silly” to publicly right his boss’s mistake. Frohnhoeferposted an image of his MacBook on Twitter which confirmed that his laptop computer was locked by the “Administrator” implying that he certainly had been fired.
Musk, then again, did tweet about it later as nicely and stated that the “ex worker is mistaken”. “I used to be advised ~1200 RPCs independently by a number of engineers at Twitter, which matches # of microservices. The ex-employee is mistaken.”
