Interestingly, Twitter “edited” the job listing once the news broke, removing the part about “Gryphon” and any mention of their internal team or their subscription feature. The listing said the company is looking for an Android engineer to “work on a bevy of backend engineering teams to build components that allow for experimentation to deliver the best experience possible to all of our users”.
