How a 23-year-old Mark Zuckerberg used to 'motivate' his staff by walking around Facebook office with a SAMURAI SWORD

A 23-year-old Mark Zuckerberg used to walk around the Facebook offices with a samurai sword pretending to threaten employees if they produced bad work, it has been claimed.

The revelation, along with the claim an angry Zuckerberg threw water all over an engineer's computer, is made in former Facebook employee Noah Kagan's new ebook.

Kagan was the employee famously fired eight months into his stint at Facebook just as it became a global sensation.

It occurred before his stock options had vested and is estimated to have cost him $100million.

In his book, according to Business Insider, Kagan claims a 23-year-old Zuckerberg would walk through the offices carrying a samurai sword, pretending to attack employees if they produced bad work.

'He’d come around and pretend to cut you, joking if you take down the site he’ll chop your head off.

'You have to remember you have a 23-year old uber nerd running one of the fastest growing sites on the web.

'As mature as he could be he also was still immature.'

During another incident, Zuckerberg allegedly threw water all over an engineer's computer after his work was not up to scratch.
