Twitter has sacked two top executives in the wake of Elon Musk's proposed purchase.
CEO Parag Agrawal "asked me to depart after letting me know he wanted to take the team in a different route," Beykpour tweeted Thursday.
Twitter's sales and product lead, Bruce Falck, was also sacked, according to a deleted message. It now says "unemployed."
"Thank you ALL for the opportunity to serve beside you. It's great. Get back to work, I can't wait to see what you build "flcktwee
On both occasions, Twitter stated it was pausing most hiring except for business-critical positions.
"We are reducing non-labor costs to be responsible and efficient," the business claimed.
According to his Twitter bio, Beykpour led design, research, product, engineering, customer support, and operations teams for consumer Twitter.
