Throw in another carton of milk, and I'll fire your mother...
Twitter is preparing to lay off an unknown number of staff, just days after Jack Dorsey returned to the micro-blabbing site. It turns out that he came back to the struggling company wielding a sharpened axe. According to the New York Times, which cited three anonymous sources, job cuts could come as early as next Tuesday. …
Not an unreasonable plan.
The execs (as are all employees) are paid on the basis of the value they add to the company. Given that Twitter has not made a profit, does not make a profit, and does not appear to have a viable plan for making a profit in the future, I'm curious about the nature of the value Mr Dorsey is deemed to add to the company.
If cutting staff and thus wages is the path to progress, then they could sack Mr Dorsey and replace him with my corriander* plant. It's just as adept at running a successful company and is quite happy to be paid in water and sunshine.
* Cilantro for any Yanks who've made it this far into my ramble.
