Elon Musk shares hilarious automated bot message he got on how to be a better Twitter manager

Twitter employees are struggling to adapt to the new reality that billionaire free speech advocate Elon Musk is now their boss and apparently, the company’s bots are also still mired in the old ways with the “Chief Twit” receiving a message calling for him to take a course to assist him as a manager.

The Tesla/SpaceX CEO closed his $44 billion deal for the San Francisco-based tech giant on Thursday and promptly trolled his critics by posting a video of him walking into Twitter headquarters carrying a sink with the words “Let that sink in,” then he quickly got down to business by cleaning out the top brass of the now-deposed censorship regime including CEO Parag Agrawal and the company’s top lawyer Vijaya Gadde, an outspoken champion of the stifling of free speech.

The new sheriff in town was very amused by the automated invitation to middle-manager training and posted it to Twitter.

“Just received this email from Twitter. This is an actual, real email that was autogenerated 🤣🤣,” wrote Musk.

“Hey Elon,” the bot message begins. “It’s time to start Managing @Twitter (M101)!”

“M101 covers what it means to be a good manager at Twitter by showing you how to create opportunities for impact, help your Tweeps grow their careers, and demonstrate care for your team,” the message reads. “Psst.. you’ve only got 30 days to finish this mandatory course. And once you’re done, we’ll enroll you in Managing @Twitter 201.”

“So demanding to allow a mere 30 days to learn this priceless information!” Musk added in another tweet.

“But Management 201 is such a tantalizing carrot …,” he said in a third tweet on the message.

Even more amusing was an open letter by Twitter employees demanding that they be allowed to keep their jobs.

“Elon Musk’s plan to lay off 75% of Twitter workers will hurt Twitter’s ability to serve the public conversation. A threat of this magnitude is reckless, undermines our users’ and customers’ trust in our platform, and is a transparent act of worker intimidation,” the employees wrote. “Twitter has significant effects on societies and communities across the globe. As we speak, Twitter is helping to uplift independent journalism in Ukraine and Iran, as well as powering social movements around the world.”

They continued, “A threat to workers at Twitter is a threat to Twitter’s future. These threats have an impact on us as workers and demonstrate a fundamental disconnect with the realities of operating Twitter. They threaten our livelihoods, access to essential healthcare, and the ability for visa holders to stay in the country they work in. We cannot do our work in an environment of constant harassment and threats. Without our work, there is no Twitter.”

“We call on Twitter management and Elon Musk to cease these negligent layoff threats. As workers, we deserve concrete commitments so we can continue to preserve the integrity of our platform,” they said, adding a laundry list of demands including that Musk “explicitly commit to preserve our benefits” and that “We demand to be treated with dignity, and to not be treated as mere pawns in a game played by billionaires.”

Musk’s acquisition of Twitter has caused a major disruption in The Force and it just continues to get better so stock up on popcorn.
