Engineer Eric Frohnhoefer, who worked on the Twitter app for the Android mobile operating system, reposted and commented on one of Musk’s tweets.

Musk replied by asking Frohnhoefer to explain, then tweeting: “Twitter is super slow on Android.” “What have you done to fix that?”

After trying to express his thoughts in a series of tweets, Frohnhoefer was asked why he hadn’t shared his feedback with his new boss privately.

The engineer, who had been with the firm for over eight years, said, “Maybe he should ask questions privately.” Maybe use Slack or email.”

Musk tweeted that Frohnhoefer had been fired on Monday, November 14, morning.
