One of Elon Musk’s first activities after taking over Twitter was Fire Parag Agrawal, Ned Segal and other top executives running Twitter. The shooting was clearly out of defiance. Parag Agrawal in particular was in Musk’s crosshairs, e.g to force his hand to actually go through with the takeover of Twitter.
Rumors have surfaced that Twitter has asked Parag Agrawal and Ned Segal to return to take over Twitter’s operations. However, they only had six minutes to decide whether to come back.
The news was first broken by Eric Frohnhoefer, the same engineer who called Elon Musk on Twitter when Musk tweeted that Twitter was slow in other countries. Frohnhoefer was later fired for taking on Musk in the public domain.
Maybe he should ask questions in private. Maybe with Slack or email. 🤷♂️

Frohnhoefer posted a tweet spreading the news that Parag and Ned have been offered to rejoin Twitter.
As Twitter plummets to new lows, Parag and Ned were reportedly asked to return but only had 6 minutes to make up their minds.

There is still a lot of ambiguity in the situation, so please use caution.
If so, it’s not the first time Twitter has had to call back people they’ve had to terminate. Shortly after Twitter fired almost half of its global employees, several dozen engineers were offered their jobs back to recognized the management of Twitter that some of the employees they fired were essential to carrying out what Musk had planned for Twitter, while others were mistakenly fired.
We still don’t know if Musk made the decision to recall Parag and Ned, or if he did initiated by the previous managers at Twitter before they quit.
It is also unclear how Parag and Ned reacted to this offer, assuming it was a legitimate offer. Parag Agrawal was entitled to a hefty severance pay when he was fired, which Musk tried to prevent.
In any case, given the upheaval on the platform, it is highly unlikely that Agrawal and Segal will return to Twitter. What’s more, it’s highly unlikely that Musk would actually make the two a serious offer.
