Elon Musk has reportedly fired Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal and CFO Ned Segal, following the completion of his deal to buy the company.
Legal affairs and policy chief Vijaya Gadde also had his contract terminated, according to reports.
It brings to a close a saga that saw Twitter going to court to hold Musk to the terms of a takeover deal that he had tried to escape.
Agrawal and Segal were in Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters when the deal closed and were escorted out, according to reports.
The social media platform’s shares will be suspended from trading on Friday, according to the New York Stock Exchange’s website.
Musk said he bought it to help humanity and wanted “civilization to have a common digital town square”.
