A Twitter user asked Musk what is the “most confusing” thing on Twitter right now.

“It looks like there are 10 “managers” for every person who codes,” Musk replied.

Tesla’s CEO said in May, just weeks after the initial offer, that “the company will be fully focused on software development, design, information security and server hardware” once the takeover is complete.

“I strongly believe that all technical managers should be technically perfect,” Musk tweeted on May 6. “Software managers have to write great software, otherwise it’s like being a cavalry captain who can’t ride a horse!”

One of Musk’s first steps after taking control of the platform was to fire three executives: former CEO Parag Agrawal, CFO Ned Segal and policy chief Vijay Gadde.

According to The Washington Post, Musk told potential investors that he plans to cut Twitter’s staff by about 75% from 7,500 to 2,000 employees.

On Sunday, Musk denied a New York Times report that the layoffs would come before November 1, when some workers receive stock subsidies.
