George Hotz, PlayStation 3 hacker, hired by Elon Musk to fix Twitter search

Twitter has reduced its workforce through layoffs and resignations in a big way since Elon Musk completed a $44 billion deal to take over the company in late October this year. Now, Twit Chief has hired Geroge Hotz, a security hacker, as a Twitter intern for 12 weeks. Must and Hotz chatted about this on the micro-blogging site.

The hacker, Hotz, has been hired to fix the “broken” search feature and remove non-dismissable login pop-ups that appear while browsing, according to their discussion on Twitter.

Hotz said in a tweet, “It’s the attitude that builds incredible things. Let go of everyone who doesn’t aspire to greatness. I’ll put my money where my mouth is. I’ll pay for the cost of living in SF.” I’m down for a 12 week internship at Twitter. It’s not about accumulating capital in a dead world, it’s about bringing the world alive.”

Responding to this, Musk said, ‘Sure, let’s talk.’

Following this, Hotz announced that he had been taken up on their offer as a Twitter intern for 12 weeks. “That’s what Elon told me was my job, and I’ll do my best to do it. I have 12 weeks to try to get rid of the non-dismissable login pop ups after you scroll down a bit.” Doing these things ruins the internet,” he further wrote in a tweet.

“I’d still consider my internship a win if I just got rid of the pop ups. I have a chrome extension on my laptop to block it. It reminds me of the guy who got the job at Apple, Wallet automatically removed your expired boarding pass, and left the next week,” he said.
