In a letter to workers, Agrawal contested the claims made by Zatko and notes that he was terminated over “ineffective leadership and poor performance.” The Twitter CEO, who was not too long ago challenged by Musk to publicly debate him over the platform’s bot issues, provides the complaints made by Zatko paint “a false narrative that is riddled with inconsistencies and inaccuracies” that has been pushed with out applicable context.
Agrawal additional accuses Zatko of inaccurate portrayal and warns workers that extra defamatory protection of the company may floor on-line within the coming days. The letter, which was first shared by CNN reporter Donnie O’Sullivan on Twitter, blasts the whistleblower over contentious claims six months after he was fired from his function, shortly after his hiring by founder Jack Dorsey throughout his second tenure as CEO.
In an announcement shared with CNN, a Twitter spokesperson remarked that the whistleblower’s “allegations and opportunistic timing appear designed to capture attention and inflict harm on Twitter, its customers and its shareholders.” It will probably be fascinating to see how Zatko and Dorsey’s presence in courtroom might shift the needle in Musk’s path. Dorsey, who’s on pleasant phrases with Musk, is alleged to be the architect behind Musk’s takeover ambitions. Zatko, then again, says that he began amassing materials for his grievance again in November 2021, months forward of Musk’s Twitter drama.
