Hours After Taking Over Twitter Inc, Elon Musk Fires CEO Parag Agrawal

Hours after taking over full control of Twitter, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, on Thursday, fired top executives of Twitter. In response to his actions, the Tesla CEO said the fired employees misguided him about the vision he outlined for the micro-blogging site Twitter.

According to reports, Musk terminated Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal, Chief Financial Officer Ned Segal and legal affairs and policy chief Vijaya Gadde over their failure to guide him properly about his vision.

Following the takeover, it was anticipated that Musk would introduce major changes to the micro-blogging site and the recent firing is only a picture of them. The sources suggest that Elon Musk’s vision involves the “defeat” of spam bots on Twitter, modifications in the algorithms to enhance users’ experience, and prevention of the platform from becoming an echo chamber for hate and division, besides limiting censorship.

Although Musk has many plans to upgrade the micro-blogging site, he is yet to reveal the roadmap for his goal’s accomplishment. With his Twitter deal, Elon Musk added, “He did not buy Twitter to make more money; instead, he bought the platform to serve the humanity that he loves“.

Ahead Of Chhath Pooja Toxic Foam Covers Yamuna Flow

Ahead of the Chhath Pooja, heavy pollution and toxic foam was observed on the Yamuna river’s ghats in Delhi. The visuals, as circulated by ANI, showed a boatman sailing his boat in the mid of the foamy Yamuna river near Delhi. 

Although the Delhi government claimed that it spent crores of Rupees to lower the pollution level in the Yamuna river, the claims seem false as the reality suggests a completely different picture. Adding to the failure of the Delhi government, BJP MPs Manoj Tiwari and Parvesh Sahib visited the Kalindi Kunj ghat. There, the MPs accused the AAP-led Delhi government of using poisonous chemicals “to kill or hide” the toxic foam in the Yamuna river.

It is important to note here that Chhath puja is on Sunday, October 30, 2022. During the pooja ritual, women take a holy dip and present Arghya to the Sun god. However, the pollution level in the country’s major rivers is not favourable for dipping, and the government’s inability to counter the pollution is a slap on people’s faith.

After A Thrilling Match, Zimbabwe Registered Victory Against Pakistan By 1 Run

In cricket, it is assumed that the circumstances can change easily and at any moment. Here, in the game, you can’t predict the future even if your team is on the winning side. This consideration tested itself in yesterday’s Pakistan vs Zimbabwe T20 match, where the Zimbabwe team showed an outstanding performance and defeated Pakistan by one run.

The match was really an outstanding one as Zimbabwe’s bowlers showed an exemplary performance to resist the army of top-level batsmen from chasing a meagre score of 130/8. With the victory, a significant section of the media came out to praise Zimbabwe’s incredible performance, and some even went on to call the victory a “Mr Bean revenge”.

The matter of “Fake Mr Bean” dates back to 2016 when Mr Bean’s look-alike Asif Mohammad went to Zimbabwe for a show. The reports suggest that the comedy show by the Pakistani artist failed drastically, as it provided little value for money in and for itself. The reports added that Asif is popular as Mr Pak Bean; however, he didn’t perform solo. Instead, in the show, he appeared alongside other musicians and gave only a subpar performance that the audience didn’t like.

BJP MP Who Knocked Court Doors Against His Party’s Inability To Provide Adequate Security Arrangements

Former Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy Thursday asked for more time from the Delhi High Court to vacate his government accommodation. The MP claimed that the central government has failed to ensure security arrangements at his private residence, due to which he is not in a position to vacate his residence. 

The issue came to light after the High Court directed Swamy to vacate the accommodation within six weeks. The ex-MP is allowed Z-category security arrangements, and he has been residing in the bungalow since his induction as a Rajya Sabha MP. Swamy’s term as an MP ended in April this year, and the High Court ordered him on September 14 to vacate his place. The High Court also asked the central government to make adequate security arrangements, to which the centre gave its nod to act earliest.

With such promises at his support, the BJP MP agreed to vacate the bungalow by October 26. However, the resistance from the centre’s side instigated Swamy to seek additional time to vacate his residence.
