Elon Musk's Twitter Takeover Just Might Work

Elon Musk has remained at the top of headlines throughout his takeover of Twitter in recent weeks. And while many have been quick to point out the chaos taking place at the social media company in that time, some have also pointed out that his long-term plans for the platform may just work.

Twitter may have been in trouble long before Elon Musk took over, at least that's what Andy Wu, Assistant Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School, said in a recent interview with The Atlantic. While Wu is no bull on Musk's past affairs, he also admits he's been "consistently wrong about projecting out Musk's potential," adding that the billionaire's success makes it hard to want to bet against him.

"He's always exceeded my expectations," Wu added.

Wu spoke with The Atlantic's Caroline Mimbs Nyce, who questioned the Harvard Business School teacher on Twitter's past, Musk's management style and what kind of CEO the Tesla, SpaceX, Neuralink and Boring Company head is. And Wu says that Twitter desperately needs some changes that Musk could be set to bring about.

"I think Musk is right in that he needs to take some chances here and try out some new things," Wu said when asked about Musk's management style. He added that Musk has a "certain desensitization" to the way his actions influence the rest of the world, which he says "other executives would be more concerned about."

But when asked if he thought the strategy was wrong, he noted that Twitter has needed some major changes for quite some time, and that it's tough to say how Musk's changes will affect the company in the long-run.

"Well, individual choices may be wrong. It's unclear if the blue-check-mark thing will turn out to be the right strategy. And it's unclear if cutting specific teams is the right strategy," Wu added. "But at a high level, I'll just highlight that Twitter is a business that, for a very long time, has been very, very weak."

Wu also described Musk as a "one-of-a-kind" executive when asked if he was a good CEO, adding that his accomplishments at SpaceX and Tesla have been something unique. And when Musk has been asked about what makes his companies so special, he largely points to his engineering background.

This can be evidenced by Musk cutting so much of Twitter's staff already, which undeniably cuts costs for the company. And Wu says that's just one of a few key things Twitter will need to do to become profitable.

In a recent statement while testifying over his compensation package at Tesla, Musk also said he considers engineering his primary role at both companies, adding that he expects to eventually find someone else to run Twitter down the road (via The Verge).

"I frankly don't want to be the CEO of any company," Musk said during the testimony. "At SpaceX, it's really that I'm responsible for the engineering of the rockets and Tesla for the technology in the car that makes it successful."

"So, CEO is often viewed as somewhat of a business-focused role, but in reality, my role is much more that of an engineer developing technology and making sure that we develop breakthrough technologies and that we have a team of incredible engineers who can achieve those goals."

We reached out to Rich and his team at Computer Geek in July 2021. We were in desperate need of help because our former website design agency left us hanging with major website issues that needed immediate attention. Rich and his team were extremely helpful and quick to come to our rescue! They have helped us with numerous projects that have helped our SEO. Our sales have increased 30% since coming to Computer Geek. We've been working with them for about nine months now and are very pleased with their response time and helpful manner. Rich has proven himself to be trustworthy and dependable. We feel valued as a customer and look forward to continuing a relationship with Computer Geek.

I would certainly like to recommend that anyone pursing maintenance for a website to contact The Computer Geek. I have been using another company to do some maintenance on my site with moderate success. There were issues that were evidently beyond what could be handled by them. However, the professionals at The Computer Geek had them addressed and rectified in no time at all. The Computer Geek approached all of my requests focusing on my goals and the needed performance. Then, once versed, presented me with a very reasonable price. Once the projects were in motion, I found that the tasks were achieved before I expected, with professional results. Also, in one instance where The Computer Geeks brought an issue to my attention that I would have likely overlooked. This was accompanied by a recommendation on how to solve the issue. Overall The Computer Geeks exceeded my expectations!

We discovered an issue with our Oscommerce cart processing images. It is about 14 years old and heavily modified. Looking on google for some expert help I found Rich and reached out to him. We received a response the same day. The next day his team was working on our issue and was able to solve it within a few hours. Price was reasonable and we are very appreciative to find a competent and professional oscommerce expert to help successfully troubleshoot our issue.

I'm very new to the whole idea of having a website / blog. I used Bluehost.com and WordPress.org to create Thepredatorhunter.com and then managed to wreck it. On a Sunday morning I opened chat box with Rich and within a few hours everything was fantastic! This isn't just a company for big biz, if your new and small, The Computer Geek can help you out. In trouble? Stop fretting and start typing in the chat box. You will be glad you did!
