In a Tweet on Thursday, Elon Musk shared auto-generated messages sent from the platform he acquired mere hours prior for $44 billion.
“Hey Elon,” the message began. “It’s time to start Managing @Twitter (M101)!” begins the opening message.
“M101 covers what it means to be a good manager at Twitter by showing you how to create opportunities for impact, help your Tweeps grow their careers, and demonstrate care for your team.”
Those Twitter HR bots have no idea who they’re messing with.
Part of the message hilariously tells Musk he has 30-days to complete M101, at which time he’ll be set to immediately begin M201.
Musk has reportedly disclosed to investors involved with the purchase his intentions of firing as much as 75% of the overall Twitter workforce.
By the time he’d received the automated message, Musk had already canned CEO Parag Agrawal. He didn’t stop there. CFO Ned Segal, General Counsel Sean Edget and high-level executive Vijaya Gadde were also shown the door on day one.
Musk, who’s also the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, seemed to enjoy poking fun at his new company.
“Just received this email from Twitter,” tweeted Musk Sunday morning. “This is an actual, real email that was auto-generated.” Musk even took the liberty of adding two “rolling on the floor laughing” emojis.

Since Musk’s purchase, reports have detailed Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters as a rather luxurious scene. Some accounts say that employees spend business hours eating free gourmet food, exercising, and even consuming alcohol.
Many San Francisco employees have still yet to return to the office since they began working from home during the COVID pandemic. Musk even joked that the underutilized space would serve better use as a homeless shelter.
Musk is known as a hard-working, demanding boss. He’s not wasting any time and has already come out with new content moderation plans. There’s good reason to believe his purchase of Twitter is a win for everyone, minus liberals of course. One thing is for certain, Elon Musk isn’t your father’s CEO.
