    Gotta pay for the CEO's Salary somehow

    More Chiefs and less Indians. A surefire way to get more revenue.

    What will the ratings agancies say about this now? Upgrade? Probably.

    How about firing Jack and his (probable) multi-million a year salary and keep the minions? Or doesn't it work that way?

      Nice idea but corporates don't work that way... maybe someday </wishful thinking mode>

      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.
