Twitter freezes hiring as execs exit

by | May 13, 2022

Twitter is undergoing a major upending phase, coming to a head internally as two major executives are seemingly being pushed out and the company ceases all hiring, reports SFGate.

According to a companywide memo obtained by Bloomberg, continues SFGate, “the company will stop hiring new employees — and may even rescind offers already made to candidates. This news comes as two Twitter executives, general manager of consumer product Kayvon Beykpour and general manager of revenue Bruce Falck, were asked by Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal to depart the company. Some outlets reported Falck and Beykpour were fired, but the exact details of their departures are unclear.

“It’s critical to have the right leaders at the right time,” Agrawal said in the memo, according to the New York Times.

Beykpour, who was asked to leave while on paternity leave, wrote on Twitter that the move was seemingly unexpected. He had been a part of the company for seven years, back when the livestreaming service Periscope, which he co-founded, was bought by Twitter.

“The truth is that this isn’t how and when I imagined leaving Twitter, and this wasn’t my decision,” Beykpour wrote in a tweet. “Parag asked me to leave after letting me know that he wants to take the team in a different direction.”

The news comes as Elon Musk, Tesla and SpaceX CEO, is in negotiations to acquire Twitter.
