Elon Musk has once again slammed major tech companies such as Google and Facebook. Musk, who doesn’t hold back his opinions on Twitter, blasted the Big Tech giants including Facebook and Google in a post. He had aggressively attacked Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg in the backdrop of the violence at the US Capitol. Musk had previously criticized Amazon for censoring the release of a book about the coronavirus.
In a response to a tweet, Musk stirred yet another controversy by referring to major tech companies as “places where talent dies.” JD Ross, a Twitter user slammed Google by writing, “Google’s greatest evil is grooming brilliant 22-year-olds into becoming complacent careerists instead of ambitious founders who might one day compete with them.”
“Most big companies in tech have turned into places where talent goes to die”. Musk responded. Many Twitter users asked him on how Tesla is doing things differently and how it is ensuring that talent does not die.
Musk’s comments on big tech companies came after one of Facebook’s ex-employees drew attention to the company. The employee-turned-whistleblower accused Facebook of turning a blind eye to the harm caused to teenage Instagram users. Frances Haugen revealed internal documents to Congress, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and the press.
