Those who are scared of being “publicly dunked on” must stay “little and hidden,” according to a Twitter executive who gained fame for sleeping on the office floor and for her dedication to Elon Musk’s “Twitter 2.0.”
Esther Crawford was employed by the social media powerhouse as a director of product management up till the weekend, according to reports. Insider reached out to Crawford and Twitter for a reaction on if or not she has left the business and the reasons why.
Crawford was regarded as a representative of Musk’s “hardcore” workplace style while she worked at Twitter. According to a Financial Times story, she was a difficult figure within the business, as both present and previous employees have said.
She was captured on camera appearing to be sleeping on the floor of the company’s San Francisco headquarters in early November, only a few days after Musk assumed control of the website. According to The Verge, Crawford also justified Musk’s original round of mass layoffs, which resulted in the elimination of several jobs.
“The worst impression you might have from watching me going all-in on Twitter 2.0 is that my enthusiasm or hard work was a mistake,” Crawford said in a tweet posted on Sunday, soon after rumors of her reported dismissal started to circulate. “Those who yell and mock are always outside the arena, not inside.”
On Twitter, many people admired Crawford and offered their support, but some also used the platform to make fun of her.
