How many of you still remember the figure of Geohot? Those of you who have gone through the struggles of the Playstation 3 to appear as a relevant console after being repeatedly beaten by the Xbox 360, of course, still remember this figure. That’s right, back in 2008, Geohot was a well-known hacker who managed to break into the Playstation 3, as well as the first to jailbreak the iPhone. This action made him have to fight against Sony in court in a fierce match, but ended up being settled outside the realm of law. Now, the name is back!
Since his involvement with Playstation 3, Geohot has not played much in the gaming industry anymore. But suddenly his legendary name surfaced again. What’s the article? After being tense in the past, Geohot finally accepted Elon Musk’s offer to help improve the social media platform he had just bought – Twitter. Via his Twitter tweet, Geohot admitted that he was given 12 weeks by Musk to solve one priority problem – improving the Twitter search function which is often unreliable.
that’s what Elon told me my job was, and I will try my hardest to do it. I have 12 weeks

There is no further information about how much payment Geohot received for the “12 week freelancing job” he handled. What do you think? Optimistic that Geohot will be able to show its strength again through different media?
