Here's why Jack Dorsey & Elon Musk are arguing on Twitter

Dorsey said he finds Birdwatch as a far better and informative name, contradicting Musk’s assertion that Twitter would become the most accurate source of information via Community notes.

A war of words ensued between the former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and new boss Elon Musk over renaming of Birdwatch to Community Notes.

Birdwatch is a community-driven feature by Twitter that largely deals with misinformation and adds helpful context to tweets.

Dorsey said Birdwatch is a far better and informative name, as Musk asserted that Twitter would become the most accurate source of information via Community Notes.

The former Twitter CEO reiterated his pitch for Birdwatch underlining that Community Notes was the most boring name ever. Musk retorted that not everything needs to have a bird in name as he made a reference to Angry Birds.

The outburst has emerged amid the social media giant sacking thousands of its employees after Musk took over as the new boss.

Earlier, Dorsey had apologised for the lay-offs taking full reponsibility for employees' situation.

Twitter, however, has reportedly called back some of its sacked employees saying they were asked to leave 'by mistake.'
