After making it appear as though he had publicly fired a Twitter employee due to a tweet, ELON Musk ignited further uproar.

The online argument occurs as the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX’s term as head of Twitter continues to be characterised by a string of early disagreements about the platform’s direction.

Eric Frohnhoefer, a Twitter employee who chose to publicly disobey his new boss, is the most recent person to incur the wrath of the “Chief Twit.”

Who is Eric Frohnhoefer?

According to his LinkedIn profile, software developer Eric Frohnhoefer spent eight years working for Twitter.

After a public argument about the app’s performance with the world’s richest man, he was fired.

Why did Elon Musk fire Eric Frohnhoefer?

Musk tweeted an apology to his followers for the slow Twitter speeds for Android users, which sparked the public firing.

Frohnhoefer disagreed with his new boss’ contention, firing back “this is wrong”.

“Twitter is super slow on Android. What have you done to fix that?”, asked Musk.

The new CEO was obviously having none of it despite listing off a number of his duties and contesting Musk’s assertion that “the amount of requests is the key issue.”

Due to the altercation, Frohnhoefer received criticism from other Twitter users for expressing his complaints in such a public forum.

“I have been a developer for 20 years. And I can tell you that as the domain expert here you should inform your boss privately,” one user wrote.

“Trying to one up him in public while he is trying to learn and be helpful makes you look like a spiteful self serving dev.”

Later, another user tagged Musk in Frohnhoefer’s subsequent tweets about the row, advising that “with this kind of attitude, you probably don’t want this guy on your team.”

Elon responded to that message within an hour, tweeting: “He’s fired”.
