Another coup from him for Elon Musk who, after taking over Twitter, launching massive layoffs and outlandish subscription services, is now looking for ways to fix the problem. The billionaire has hired George Hotz for a three-month internship, after of course studying his ideas on Twitter, where he is always very active. Hotz has made a name for himself not only because of his stormy past with Musk, but also because of some reckless adventures in gaming.

Elon Musk and the “Twitter Mission” —

Namely, George Hotz is known for jailbreaking iPhone carrier lock and hacking PlayStation 3 in 2011. With such a curriculum, Musk was pleased that he could revive Twitter, having already tried to hire him. at the time of Tesla (the negotiations failed due to lack of agreement on the terms of the hiring). Hotz then founded Comma AI and promised to develop autonomous driving software similar to that of the billionaire’s company; promise that the latter said he doubted because the computer scientist would not have had “remarkable technical validation capabilities”. Which now doesn’t stop him from engaging with his team on Twitter.

Hotz’s goals —

The story is even more curious when one considers that Hotz accepted not only a three-month internship in lieu of a full-time job, but even to (apparently) work alone to be supported in San Francisco, where the cost of rent and living in generally , like the work, is exorbitant. Now the hacker has just 12 weeks to fix Twitter. His plans? First of all, the idea is to remove the login popup that appears after scrolling too long without being logged in or having an account. Then improve the relevance of research results, a topic that has always been controversial, as relevance will always, or almost always, remain a subjective and obvious factor. But “if only I could remove the popup I would still consider my internship a win,” he tweeted. “I have a Chrome extension on my laptop to block it”. Statements, and especially the character herself, that have not received a very warm reception abroad, as evidenced by articles such as those published on Kotaku that summarize the story.
