All four of you may remember Geohot, the infamous code junkie who cracked Sony’s console in what was – worryingly – a gigantic PlayStation news story circa 2009. He recently re-emerged as part of Elon Musk’s ongoing social media soap opera, when he was tasked with “fixing” Twitter by the real-life Tony Stark. He’s since quit his role after approximately a month.

George ‘Geohot’ Hotz ironically announced in a tweet that he’d resigned from the company as he “didn’t think there was any real impact I could make there”. He added that he “appreciated the opportunity” and is “still rooting for the success of Twitter 2.0”. He said he won’t do a public exit interview discussing his observations from within the company. And that’s it – that’s the story. Did you like it?

As you may know, Twitter has become a bit of a circus since Musk’s multi-billion dollar buyout of the company, culminating in a recent poll in which he asked users whether he should step aside as CEO. They obviously voted to boot him out, and he’s now confirmed he will depart “as soon as [he finds] someone foolish enough to take the job”.

Video games are great, guys!
