The well-known Security hacker George Hotz, also known as geohot, has left his internship at Twitter after being hired by Elon Musk a month ago. He was tasked with fixing the login process and search functionality. He was intended to work for the organisation for 12 weeks.
Giving up on Twitter
After working for Twitter for almost a month, “Security hacker George Hotz” announced his resignation. The Verge said that while he enjoyed the journey, he did not believe that his stay had any significance.
The former CEO only worked for Twitter as an intern for roughly five and a half weeks instead of the 12-weeks he had originally planned.
If asked if he had made any contributions while he was there, he reportedly responded, “Yes, albeit none particularly impactful.” He continued by saying that he had no second thoughts about his choice and that he would continue to support Musk in his efforts to make Twitter a success. He was not pleased with the platform’s transient policy that forbade links to Instagram, though.
He recently posted a poll about his employment on Twitter, comparable to the CEO’s poll about whether or not he should resign. A total of 81,890 ballots were cast, with 64% voting no and 36% voting yes.

On November 16th, Hotz made an offer to work for the organisation in exchange for compensation for living expenses in San Francisco, expressing his support for the platform’s “very hardcore” upgrade and Elon Musk, the company’s new CEO. Sure, let’s speak, Musk retweeted the user.
After the conversation, he was recruited two days later and began working at Twitter. The Twitter Search and the pop-up login that cannot be dismissed while scrolling Twitter were given to him to solve because they were “things that damage the internet,” in his words.
Before all of this, he recently resigned from his position as CEO of Comma Ai, a firm that made driver-assist technology and was a rival to Elon Musk’s Autopilot for Tesla.

He announced his resignation after claiming that the company had evolved and that he would be more effective as a cheerleader and court jester.
Musk also extended a multimillion-dollar deal to Hotz to work for Tesla, his automaker. But according to Eurogamer, he declined and put an end to their argument by saying that he could create a superior self-driving automobile system.
Since both of them have a shared goal in creating a better search engine for Twitter, the two appear to have reconciled thanks to the internship from Twitter.
