Elon Musk apologizes after mocking laid-off, disabled Twitter employee
Associated Press reports that Haraldur Thorleifsson began working for Twitter in 2021 when his startup, Ueno, was acquired by the company. On March 5, Throleifsson, who lives in Iceland, signed on to his computer to work. But he and about 200 other people were locked out of the system. Considering the recent mass layoffs at Twitter, Thorleifsson questioned whether he still had a job. He reached out to the appropriate channels to see if he was still employed but didn't hear back for nine days.
