Renowned author James Patterson has cited the wisdom of Twitter’s new boss Elon Musk to stress the need for employees to commit to a “hardcore” work ethic.
It’s one of those things where I don’t have anyone to support me. I mean Elon Musk is so smart that he goes and he reassures those people,” Patterson said Friday on Jesse Waters’ Primetime. , who aren’t trying hard enough to quit.
Elon Musk, the world’s richest man, closed his $44 billion blockbuster acquisition of Twitter on 27 October 2022 and has since faced criticism and complaints from the Left. He drew further furore from the Liberals on Wednesday.
When he emailed Twitter employees with an ultimatum, they either had to commit to a very strict work ethic or leave the company. Elon Musk argued that Twitter should be more prepared for an increasingly competitive world and therefore more willing to pay employees.
Patterson applauded the move but also suggested that Elon Musk could be the talk of the town. You know, let’s make Twitter great again, you know, something like that, Patterson said with a laugh. And we’re going to roll up our sleeves to do just that. And I think people can get into it a little bit.
The author further said that if you are not going to work hard in the company for some reason, I mean why would you want people? And many Twitter employees didn’t stick around. It’s not clear how many employees decided to leave after Wednesday’s email.
Elon Musk recently laid off half of the company’s 7,500 full-time employees and an undisclosed number of contractors. Patterson’s new book Triple Cross was released on Halloween, and is the 30th book in the Alex Cross novel series.
