FSU expert: Business professor available to discuss impact of workforce changes on Twitter

For several weeks, Twitter has been in the news amid billionaire Elon Musk’s takeover. Mass layoffs and resignations have been reported following Musk’s acquisition of the company.

The reports have prompted many Twitter users to suggest that the social media platform may cease to exist in the future.

“It will be interesting to see how this approach leads to better Twitter or no Twitter at all,” said Wayne A. Hochwarter, Melvin T. Stith Sr. Professor of Business Administration at Florida State University.

Hochwarter is available to discuss the changes on Twitter.

His research has been discussed in major business/social publications including Harvard Business Review, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Miami Herald, Orlando Sentinel, Times of India, Florida Trend, China Daily, Daily Mail – UK and news/radio programs such as NPR, Minnesota Public Radio, MSNBC, NBC News and ABC Evening News.

“Mr. Musk knows exactly what he is doing and has a vision for his company, including who he wants to lead when he hands it over. that’s “honey,” given a labor market characterized by shortages of critical jobs, including technology. This is the signature behavior of many successful entrepreneurs. They want to surround themselves with people who eat, drink and sleep their vision – and it’s usually a short-term disaster, as evidenced by the most recent media publications “He who has the gold makes the rules”, is evident in this case. Musk knew that a change was needed, and in one fell swoop he changed the work climate on Twitter to ensure those left behind shared his vision, even at the cost of billions.
