Following the now-debunked reports that Musk planned to fire 75% of the company’s workforce, Twitter’s new CEO has sent a few people packing after all.
As one of his first moves as CEO of Twitter, Musk has reportedly fired a few top officials, including Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Ned Segal, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Parag Agrawal, and Vijaya Gadde, the head of legal policy, trust and safety.
According to reports, the company’s general counsel, Sean Edgett, was also given the boot by what appears to be Musk, firmly grabbing hold of Twitter’s inner workings.
In the past, Musk has repeatedly criticized the company for its censorship, content moderation, and product decisions, even mentioning that he planned to restore the banned former American president, Donald Trump’s account.

Dogecoin: Buy The Rumour, Sell The News?
Similar to what happened with Ethereum before and after the merge, when the cryptocurrency dipped below $1,300 after the bullish streak that took its price as high as $1,700, Dogecoin appears to be showing some serious correlation.
After breaking the $0.075 resistance to the upside yesterday, Dogecoin moved in for a retest and even appeared to have successfully bounced off the support level.
However, DOGE reversed in its trajectory, has fallen below the support, and now appears to be retesting it for another attempt at a breakthrough to the upside.
As illustrated above, the $0.075 resistance has been valid since June and is one of the most important points Dogecoin has to break before a significant move to the upside.
Dogecoin appears to have formed an ascending triangle and may consolidate between $0.075 and $0.06 for the next few weeks before any kind of breakout to the upside or downside. Depending on what the bulls can pull off against the bears.
