Elon Musk asks Twitter programmers to write weekly reports, down to the number of lines of code

According to reports, Twitter internal emails, the company requires technical employees must send weekly emails to CEO Elon Musk, all their work for the week, as a way to achieve “rapid innovation”.

The email used by Elon Musk and his leadership team sent an email to Twitter programmers saying that Twitter will adopt a new method to track their work progress. Starting this week, all Twitter employees who work in programming or technology will be required to submit a weekly summary of the work they have done, what they hope to accomplish and the number of lines of code they have written.

The email reads, “In order to innovate quickly in software, we have to know what everyone is working on and who is writing what code.” The email was addressed to “Twitter Engineering,” which Elon Musk personally leads.

The email comes just hours after Elon Musk held an all-staff meeting at Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters. He said at the meeting that he was not going to continue laying off employees and would not move the company’s headquarters to Texas. Twitter reportedly now has about 2,000 full-time employees, about a third of the 7,500 it had when it was acquired by Elon Musk in late October.

Employees must submit a separate email and include “what project you’re working on” and “what you plan to accomplish,” as well as a “code sample/link to the Phabricator for the code written this week. ” Phabricator is a software development platform that allows for active review of submitted code.

According to the email, employees will need to modify their weekly submissions based on the specific type of work they are doing. The email concludes, “We look forward to making Twitter the best tech software company in the world.”

The following is the original email (translated).
From: Twitter Engineering Department

Subject: Software / Technology Weekly

Fellow Tweeter.

In order to innovate quickly in software, we have to understand what everyone is doing and who is writing what code.

Going forward, every Friday (this week is Wednesday), please send your weekly reports to [email protected] The format is as follows

  • Subject: “Weekly Report, Name, Department, Date (Example: Weekly Report, John Smith, SWE, 11.20)”
  • Body of email.

What project you are working on (e.g., Blue Certification)

What are you planning to achieve (e.g., reliably collect $8 in payments)

Code samples / Phabricator links for code written this week

This weekly update applies to.

All managers/engineers of SWE and ML

All people who should be writing code in other departments, such as SRE and Web

For technical positions that do not write code (e.g. network/database administrators), please replace the “Sample Code / Phabricator link to code written this week” with the “Summary of Work” above

For technical positions that do not write code, but are working on analytics tasks (e.g. data scientists), please replace the “Code samples / Phabricator links for code written this week” with the “Analytics summary and results”.

If you have any questions or clarifications, please email [email protected]

We look forward to making Twitter the best tech software company in the world.

Twitter Engineering Department
