Elon Musk was ‘angry’ when a staffer broke Twitter

Elon Musk’s day got progressively worse in a matter of hours on Monday. Having already fended off a scathing BBC report that highlighted the Twitter CEO’s continued managerial blunders and more (he’s reportedly taking bodyguards to the bathroom with him), the social media platform went haywire around noon EST when tweets stopped were loaded and pictures were broken all over the plot. A frustrated Musk fired off a tweet lamenting the state of Twitter code stack.

“One small API change had a massive impact,” Musk wrote at the top of the chaos. “The code stack is extremely brittle for no good reason. Will eventually have to be completely rewritten.”

But that wasn’t the whole story. Confirming the earlier BBC report that Twitter was severely understaffed by massive layoffs and layoffs, a new report claims that just one employee oversaw the move to a new paid API system. The consequences were quickly apparent. About platformers:

The change had far-reaching ramifications within the company, bringing down many of Twitter’s internal tools along with its publicly exposed APIs. On Slack, the engineers responded with variations of “crap” and “Twitter is off — the whole thing” as they struggled to fix the issue.

Elon Musk was furious, we’re told.

However, staff confirmed that Musk is partially correct. Twitter’s infrastructure is in bad shape, which is why you need a team of engineers to carefully implement all the changes.

“There’s so much technical debt from Twitter 1.0 that if you make a change now, it’ll break everything,” an employee told Platformer. Rather than grapple with that reality, Musk has proceeded with layoffs.
