Elon Musk Just Hired PS3 Hacker George Hotz To Help Fix Twitter

Twitter has been in complete chaos since Elon Musk took over, first he fired half of Twitter’s employees and then gave an ultimatum to the remaining half to work hardcore hours without any extra pay or leave. Naturally everyone else took a three-month break and the #RIPTwitter hashtag started trending. This has led to a flood of fake accounts that have cost the real companies millions, and copyright enforcement is so lax that users are sharing the entire film on Twitter.

But there was one person who didn’t work at Twitter and actually agreed with Musk’s ultimatum. It is that attitude that makes incredible things happen. Let go of all those who do not aspire to greatness. Apparently working long hours to make up for the cost of living in San Francisco, Hotz offered his services to Musk to help fix Twitter.

Desperate for help, Musk replied let’s talk Hotz said he could tidy up a portion of those 1,000 microservices in 12 weeks. Furthermore, very much like that, Hotz turned into Twitter’s most up to date understudy Hotz plans to fix Twitter’s long-broken search functionality and remove login pop-ups after scrolling down because these things ruin the Internet. As long as he gets rid of that pop-up, he’ll consider his internship a win.

Hotz has already run into problems that may be too much for the human mind, no matter how intelligent that mind. A recent thread from Hotz solicited help in fixing the search function, although he acknowledged that he is just an Internet user and doesn’t really have the authority to hire anyone. This comes after The Verge reported yesterday that Twitter was done with the layoffs and has returned to actively recruiting for roles in engineering and sales.

One would think that the most knowledgeable engineers were the hundreds that Musk fired a few weeks ago, but demanding contracted service from your employees probably isn’t going to entice potential software engineers even in this economy.
