Substack Rejects Twitter Employees Considering Quitting Over Elon Musk | eSocialNews


Substack is hiring, but the online publishing platform’s vice president of communications doesn’t necessarily want to receive applications from people who currently work for Twitter.

“If you’re a Twitter employee who’s considering resigning because you’re worried about Elon Musk pushing for less regulated speech… please do not come work here,” Lulu Cheng Meservey said in a Tuesday morning tweet. “But for everybody else, we really are hiring!”

Meservey’s message came shortly after Twitter announced Elon Musk will be joining its board of directors. The CEO of Tesla and SpaceX became Twitter’s largest shareholder after purchasing a 9.2 percent stake in the company. Musk recently criticized Twitter for “failing to adhere to free speech principles” and asked whether his followers believe a “new platform” is needed.

In a series of tweets, Meservey posted a link to Substack’s careers page and said the company has job openings for programmers, developers, product managers and data analysts. Meservey described the company as one that features “a talented, determined, passionate, motley team of all backgrounds and beliefs” with team members who “debate respectfully, execute maniacally, and live to serve writers and podcasters.”

“Long live independent publishing,” she added.

Newsweek reached out to Substack for comment and will update this article with any response.
