  • Elon Musk tweeted a picture Tuesday of him with two men who recently impersonated laid-off Twitter employees in media interviews.
  • “Important to admit when I’m wrong & firing them was truly one of my biggest mistakes,” Musk wrote.
  • Musk culled half of Twitter’s workforce soon after taking charge and has now taken to firing employees who challenge him on Twitter.

Weeks after slashing half of Twitter’s jobs, Elon Musk has posted a picture of himself with two men who pretended to be laid-off employees.

In a tweet Tuesday afternoon, Musk shared a photo of him smiling at Twitter’s headquarters alongside men who go by the names Rahul Ligma and Daniel Johnson.

“Welcoming back Ligma & Johnson!” Musk captioned the shot.

In a follow-up tweet, he wrote, “Important to admit when I’m wrong & firing them was truly one of my biggest mistakes.”

The men pictured with him made headlines late last month when they pretended to be laid-off Twitter employees leaving the office for the last time with their belongings in boxes. They gave media interviews under that guise, and several news outlets initially reported on their departures before later issuing corrections after the hoax came to light.

The man who goes by Rahul Ligma also recently pretended to be a laid-off employee of the crypto exchange FTX.

Shortly after taking charge at Twitter, Musk laid off 3,700 employees. He is now firing others who have criticized him on Twitter.
