Who Is Halli Thorleifsson? Elon Musk Apologizes To The Former Employee
The act of publicly mocking has once again hit back at Elon Musk. Elon Musk’s presumed to be taking his employees for granted as he keeps mocking his employees despite their creative and smart work at Twitter. Since he acquired Twitter for $44 billion, he has been associated with a series of mocking cultures, of his employees.
It began with a former employee who criticized him, and it went on. He has given hell to his employees through mass layoffs. Lay-offs have been a common factor in industries. It is believed that the employees were offended by how the company waivered them off, despite their loyalty to the company for many years.
Elon Musk Mocked Disabled Twitter Employee On Twitter
In a fresh development, Elon Musk has lit his own yard’s own fire after he mocked a disabled employee on Twitter – who also employs at Twitter.
The fresh mocking-up session of Elon Musk began when a disabled employee of Twitter sought the attention of Elon Musk regarding her status at work when he was denied access to the accounts of Twitter.
He was struggling to get back into his account. He then emailed the HR of the team for an update regarding his job status, whether he is fired or not.
The tweet from Halli reads, “Dear @elonmusk, 9 days ago the access to my work computer was cut along with about 200 other Twitter employees. However, your head of HR is not able to confirm if I am an employee or not. You’ve not answered my emails. Maybe if enough people retweet you’ll answer me here?”
In response, Elon Musk asked the employee about the kind of job he did at the company and accused the concerned employee did not doing anything to the company for the past few months. He then assured that he served on a SaaS contract named “FIGMA” as well as others, and also prioritized design projects across the company.
Elon Musk kept on mocking him, claiming that the former Twitter employee is trying to gain fame and huge amounts of money by attacking the company on Twitter.
It appears that Hali was okay with being fired, as he understands it is a necessity for the company to do so. But what matters to him is that company avoids paying what they owe to him. He also claimed that he sold out his start Ueno, despite the company’s well-run in the market.
He confessed that he sold the company for a lower price than its worth because he thought Twitter had much more potential to grow.
Moreover, he doesn’t regret the decision to sell it to Twitter. Though he seems to be regretting the decision of handing over the social media giant to Elon Musk– who laid off more than 60% of the workforce.

Over the conversation, Hali also told that he lost his legs 20 years ago; since then he has been extremely dependent on his brain and hands, especially his fingers. Due to his successive contributions to better wheelchair access in Iceland, he was named by votes as the person of the year by four different Iceland media outlets.
Things came into reality when Daniel Houghton replied to one of Elon’s tweets where he claimed that Halli Thorleifsson directly worked with him and he assured that Halli was a down-to-earth person.
After his tweet, Elon Musk apologizes for his behavior after learning the truth about Halli. He claimed that most of the things he heard were untrue, after communicating with Halli, and Elon Musk said in his tweet that Halli was “considering remaining at Twitter”.
Although Hali hasn’t commented or responded to that, it appears that he is planning to launch his new restaurant after his mom, Anna Jona, in Reykjavik.
