It hasn't been long since Elon Musk officially became the owner of Twitter, and the SpaceX CEO has already revealed what he believes is the most messed up thing at the company.
The SpaceX and Tesla CEO posted an email sent to him from Twitter informing him he has just thirty days to complete a mandatory course on how to run the company, and within that Twitter thread, Musk answered a question from an individual that asked him "what's the one thing that's most messed up at Twitter right now??". Musk replied by saying that there seemed to be ten people in a managerial position for every single person that was coding, which speaks to Musk's as well as Twitter's previous statements of planned layoffs at the company.
There have been quite a lot of rumors swirling that Musk plans on taking the reins at Twitter and becoming the company's CEO, which would make him CEO of three different companies. However, Musk recently confirmed that this isn't something he desires, and that he would prefer to be referred to by his self-proclaimed title within his Twitter bio - "Chief Twit". Furthermore, Musk said that he "has no idea" who the CEO is, which indicates that it's still quite early in the deciding process for who would be the best fit for the position.
