Geohot Twitter Mayhem
Twitter's Missing Search Engine.
George Hotz, also known as Geohot, is a famous hacker and founder of Comma.ai. Elon Musk hired him to work on Twitter to improve its search functionality. However, after only a month, he resigned from his Twitter internship, saying he was unhappy with the work environment and lack of freedom.
- Geohot said as if he could solve all the issues,
- Then looked for a one-liner front-end solution for "fixing the search problem"
- and eventually quit without delivering any of the solutions.
It's not that Geohot is overrated. But it still poses a question for ① being a superintelligent 10x developer and ② being a cooperative team player developer. Geohot was the first, whereas Twitter needed the second.
