We need a fundamental change in approach at Twitter, not more attention seeking

19 December 2022

Mike Clancy, General Secretary of Prospect, a leading tech union representing many Twitter staff in the UK, said:

“This latest erratic behaviour by Elon Musk, once again underlines the deep issues over the way this company is being run.

“Whether or not Musk carries through on this vote, and is the Chief Executive going forward, he will still own the business. This means it seems highly doubtful that we will see a sea change in strategy.

“The way that Twitter under Musk has treated its staff has been appalling, riding roughshod over the principles that underpin UK employment law.

“What is needed is a fundamental change in approach, rather than more attention seeking, knee jerk decision making.”
