PayPal Exec Is Out After A Couple Months On The Job, Goes on a Twitter Tirade Against His Colleagues
PayPal‘s new director of strategy, Rakesh Agrawal, is already out with only two months on the job. And on his way out the door, he took to Twitter Friday night to rail against his own colleagues.
The tweets started at about 1am with the announcement: “Done working for the weekend. Jazz fest time.” The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival wrapped this Sunday.
By the middle of the night, he was posting tweets with crazy misspellings and giving the finger to some unidentified someone. Unlike the post at right, some of those crazy tweets were directed at other Paypal staffers who he does name. This finger tweet and many of the others in this Business Insider post look to have been since deleted.
By Saturday evening, PayPal posted on its Twitter account that Agrawal was “no longer with the company” because they have a “zero tolerance” policy for the disrespect Agrawal showed his fellow staffers. Agrawal maintains, however, that he quit, calling the PayPal tweet “misleading” because it insinuates he was fired. In the screenshot that Agrawal posted of his resignation, you see a time stamp of 9:34pm on Friday, a few hours before his tweet rant began.
Fired or resigned, this is not a good look for Agrawal.
