From Blaze:

Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk reportedly fired four top executives from the leadership of Twitter on Thursday after completing a deal to buy the company.

Musk reportedly fired the company’s chief executive officer Parag Agrawal, chief financial officer Ned Segal, top legal and policy executive Vijaya Gadde, and general counsel Sean Edgett, according to a report from the New York Times that cited confidential sources.

First off, those confidential sources piping information into the New York Times are probably going to disappear very quickly, particularly if Musk is as smart as I believe him to be.

I very seldom weep for fired executives. The firing of the top brass at Twitter the moment Elon Musk walked in the door is not going to be an exception to that trend. The way you kill a snake is you remove its head. I’m quite sure that Mark Zuckerberg will hire them though they won’t be making the same kind of salary. Zuck simply can’t afford it.

I will also say to any Republican who happens to get elected to any high office, the way this was done, is the way you should do it. Bureaucrat heads should roll before the echo dies from your taking the oath of office. And here’s the thing, for the most part they don’t need to be replaced, either.

As to Twitter itself, it’s going to be interesting cover these next few months. I suspect and suppose that the linkage between the propaganda efforts of the government and big tech in general but Twitter in particular will come to a crashing halt. It’s my judgment that Musk will have none of that.
