Elon Musk became Twitter’s owner late Thursday as his $44 billion deal to take over the company closed.

As one of his first moves, he fired several top Twitter executives, according to three people familiar with the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive matters. One of those confirmed the deal had closed.

CEO Parag Agrawal, chief financial officer Ned Segal, and Vijaya Gadde, head of legal policy, trust, and safety, were all fired, according to the people. Sean Edgett , the company’s general counsel, was also pushed out, one of the people said. The top executives were hastily shuttled from the building, the people said.

I have only recently gotten into the ha-but of posting on Twitter more regularly, mainly research/work stuff and it’s been pretty good for making connections.

But if it becomes more “influencer” focused (yuck!), I likely won’t stick around for long!

I don't like, "influencers."

I don't like the concept.

I hope this phenomenon fades away one day soon.

Took a look at Twitter.
No changes yet, but got a bad feeling in my stomach. Smiler
