Sasha Solomon was fired after she said bad things about Elon Musk.
Software engineer Sasha was one of many Twitter employees who lost their jobs after criticizing Elon Musk, who bought the company.
>> Two suspects were arrested in a Christmas Eve “Elle Edwards” shot in the head and killed.
Solomon, a software engineer at a big social media company in Portland, was surprised when her account was suddenly locked. It happened when the Twitter worker tried to see what was new on Slack and read new messages.
Next, Sasha tried to open her work email, but it wouldn’t work. Then she went to her email account, where she saw an email from a Twitter employee in charge of human resources.
Ms. Solomon said that after being told, “Your recent actions have broken company policy,” she called her husband and said, “I guess I don’t work here anymore.”
Sasha found out later that she was one of many people who lost their jobs at the organization because they didn’t like the new boss. Sasha, for her part, had already said that she disagreed with Elon’s plans to buy Twitter.
She is still unsure if the tweets that were mean to her got her fired or if she was one of the 3,700 people who lost their jobs when Musk bought the company in October.
How did Solomon get the job she has now at Twitter?
Sasha grew up on the edge of the Idaho city of Coeur d’Alene. She never thought she would work for one of the best companies in the world.
Sasha went to the University of Idaho to study computer science and math. She wanted to stay and work in the state where she was born.
But a close friend of hers got an excellent job at a tech company in San Francisco and told her to look for work there too. After a while, Solomon started working at a new company in The Bay Area. Soon after, he started working at Medium as a software engineer.
She got a job at Twitter in December 2018.
She was in the core services group, which was in charge of the company’s digital infrastructure.
She was an expert in the query language GraphQL, which is at the heart of Twitter’s application program. Soon, Ms. Solomon gave many public speeches and represented the company at events and conferences.
Mike, her husband, also works at Twitter. He was permitted to work from home and move from San Francisco to their hometown of Portland in October 2020. Because she worked hard at her job, she was made manager in 2021. There, she oversaw about ten engineers.
She said, “I had a lot of chances to get better.”
Solomon liked how the company ran and said, “Twitter has always been about free speech.”
“On the inside, we’ve always spoken up. You never had to worry about what would happen if you said something.
When the founder of Tesla said in April that he wanted to buy Twitter, Sasha Solomon tweeted, like thousands of others, that she wasn’t happy about it.
There, she posted a picture of a sign in the window of a coffee shop that said it was closed because of a staff meeting.
