Chief Twit and Twits — A Shift in Twitter’s Management Style

As soon as Elon Musk took over Twitter, Inc. as the new owner, he changed his tagline on Twitter to Chief Twit.

Co-workers at Twitter used to call each other Tweeps but Elon Musk says they will now be called Twits. “Tweeps will be twits going forward, as the latter has vastly more gravitas,” he said.

When he was asked by one of his friends and Tesla retail investor Omar if he wants to be the CEO of Twitter for a while, “My title is Chief Twit right there in the bio. No idea who the CEO is,” Musk replied.

Musk also noted that the management culture of Twitter is not what he expected it to be. “There seem to be 10 people “managing” for every one person coding,” he said.

Tesla & SpaceX where Elon Musk is the CEO, have a different work culture that is result-oriented and based on constant innovation. Now Twitter management engineers will have to adopt the same work ethic that Elon Musk himself believes in and practices everyday.
