Substack VP Triggers Twitter Employees

The vice president of communications at Substack, Lulu Cheng Meservey, roasted triggered Twitter employees who were angered over Elon Musk’s stock purchase.

According to reporting from The Post Millennial, dozens of Twitter employees — including data scientists, software engineers and even a recruiting manager — took to the social media platform to complain about Tesla CEO, and known Twitter critic, Elon Musk’s major 73.5 million share purchase — that’s 9.2% of shares. The investment made Musk the largest individual shareholder at Twitter.

Then, on April 5, it was announced that Musk would be appointed to serve on Twitter’s board of directors. The Tesla CEO then celebrated the news by posting about potential “significant improvements” to the platform, which likely triggered many Twitter employees. It is anticipated that he will be using his newfound influence to push back against the company’s blatant censorship.

Now that the employees are in a panic over Musk, many may be looking for a new job. And the vice president of communications for the online subscription newsletter platform, Substack, apparently has something to say about that, sending out a hilarious post regarding a new “hiring policy.”

“Substack is hiring!” Lulu Cheng Meservey tweeted, though she quickly added an important caveat.

“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,” the Substack executive added.

“But for everybody else, we really are hiring! Join a talented, determined, passionate, motley team of all backgrounds and beliefs. We debate respectfully, execute maniacally, and live to serve writers and podcasters,” Meservey continued. “Long live independent publishing.”

Her tweet immediately went viral, receiving tons of responses, some hilarious, some positive — and, obviously, many negative responses from the left.

“If funny was weaponized…this tweet would be literal violence,” one user responded.

“Wish more companies were honest like this,” another replied.
