Elon Musk, the CEO of Twitter, has apologized to Haraldur Thorleifsson, a former employee who was locked out of his account along with 200 others, glamsquad reports
Halli, 45, had contacted the billionaire via Twitter, informing him that the head of HR was unable to confirm whether he was still employed. Musk responded casually, “What work have you been doing?”
This sparked a conversation between the two, and Halli was forced to share what he had done for the company. Musk, who appeared unimpressed, told the former employee that he needed to provide evidence. “Pics or it didn’t happen,” the CEO said on Twitter.
However, Halli was unable to do so because his account had been blocked.
Soon after, the 45-year-old received an email confirming his dismissal from the company.
Things didn’t stop there. Musk ended the conversation by calling Halli “the worst,” which he later deleted in a tweet.
But that wasn’t all. He still had a lot to say. “The reality is that this guy (who is independently wealthy) did no actual work, used a disability that prevented him from typing as an excuse, and was simultaneously tweeting up a storm,” Musk wrote in a tweet.
He apologized to the former employee and offered him his job back a few hours later.
