Bill Gates says fellow tech billionaire Elon Musk has taken a “seat-of-the-pants” style approach to decision-making on Twitter.
The Microsoft co-founder told the Financial Times in an interview on Tuesday that Musk’s management style could increase polarization on the platform.
Speaking on the challenge of digital polarization, Gates said, “I think, certainly, the Twitter situation is exacerbating things.
Instead of an objective set of measures taken by a broad group of people, you can see the seat- Looking for off-the-pants type activity.
Seat-of-the-pants refers to decision-making that relies on personal experience and judgment rather than objective measures or technology.
Gates said Twitter “needs to focus on things that incite riots or create huge misconceptions about the safety of vaccines or masks or those kinds of things.”
“The task of dealing with misinformation will be daunting” even for a fair-minded person with the world’s best technology and an infinite staffing budget, he told the FT.
Bill Gates and Elon Musk have feuded in the past over their opposing views on issues like space travel and climate change – but the Microsoft billionaire is not alone in taking exception to Musk’s style of running Twitter.
Since he acquired the social media giant in October, Elon Musk has made several decisions that have invited criticism. He fired top leadership—including CEO Parag Agarwal—removing nearly half of Twitter’s
workforce and told the remaining employees that they would have to adapt to a new “radical” work culture if they wanted to stay at the company.
Musk’s policies on content moderation also alienated advertisers, with some opting to abandon the platform altogether.
Bill Gates’ comments on Musk came shortly after reports emerged that the Tesla CEO had enlisted executives from his other companies to work on Twitter.
