Indeed, the one who is also the founder of the high-end electric car brand Tesla has already dismissed four senior executives from the organization chart of the famous blue bird social network. According to several generally very well-informed sources, we learn that among these important positions is that of chief financial officer Ned Segal, CEO Parag Agrawal, legal and political officer Vijaya Gadde and general counsel Sean Edgett.

As a reminder, Elon Musk, who had announced that he wanted to withdraw from the agreement to sell the social network estimated at 44 billion euros, had made an about-face in October to finally acquire the American web giant a few weeks later. Since the layoffs, several media outlets have tried to reach the billionaire to learn more about the new policy he was putting in place, but he declined to respond to interview requests.

In good communication, as if to reassure them, the whimsical billionaire shared on Twitter a video of his entrance to the head office this week. Through this excerpt, we can see him chatting with workers.
