It happens that after the employees left, a series of protests followed. Some of them gathered in front of the headquarters to show the American thug their discontent with the job ultimatum they received from him. Like this, projected onto the building hundreds of insults, criticisms and reproaches.

The conflict erupted after a company statement urging workers to make a decision about their future.

“We are temporarily closing our offices and disabling access cards until next Monday November 21st. Thank you for your flexibility. Please continue to honor the company’s policy not to share confidential information on social media, with the press or from anywhere else.We look forward to working with you on the exciting future on Twitter,” the statement read.

Thus, hours later the projection could be seen on the offices:

The reaction was immediate: the hashtags”#RIPTwitter” and “#GoodbyeTwitter” They were trending as hundreds of workers filled the company’s Slack with goodbye messages.

Naturally, Musk responded with a meme:

the mass exodus

After the new owner of the company has issued an ultimatum on joining the “culture reset” of the company: they began to post the goodbyes in slowcompany chat and even goodbye emojis on social networks.

The new purge from Twitter’s ranks comes after Musk recently fired dozens of employees who criticized or mocked him in internal tweets and messages. Musk then set a deadline on Thursday for all employees to answer “yes” to a Google form asking if they wanted to stay at what Musk calls “Twitter 2.0”.

Otherwise today would be their last day of work and they would receive severance pay. After the deadline, hundreds of employees quickly started posting messages goodbye and hello emoji in Slack on Twitterannouncing that he said no to Musk’s ultimatum.

The last couple of weeks have been a whirlwind for the company: changes to Twitter Blue subscription (which meant losing the verification checkmark for accounts that already have it unless they pay $8 a month), new “official” certifications for legitimate accounts, layoffs, Musk’s constant cross-referencing with employees on the social network, and more.

Twitter had about 2,900 employees left before Thursday’s deadline, thanks to Musk laying off about half of the workforce. 7,500 people when he took office and the resignations that followed.

Remaining and departing Twitter employees told The Verge that given the scale of this week’s resignations, they expect the platform to start crashing soon. One says he saw “legendary engineers” and others look up to leave one by one.

critical places

“It looks like all the people who made this place great are leaving,” the staffer said on Twitter. “It’s going to be extremely difficult for Twitter to bounce back from here, no matter how tough the people left try to be.”

Several “critical” engineering teams within Twitter have now fully or nearly completely resigned, said another employee who requested anonymity to speak without Musk’s permission.

For example, the team that maintains Twitter’s core system libraries used by all of the company’s engineers left after Thursday. “You cannot run Twitter without this computer”the employee said on the social network.

Musk’s first priority as the new owner of Twitter has been to radically reset his work culture. In an email to employees this week, he wrote: “Moving forward, to develop Twitter 2.0 and succeed in an increasingly competitive world, we will have to be extremely tough. This will mean working long hours at high intensity. Only outstanding performances will constitute a passing grade.

The departing Twitter employees have been told they will receive at least three months of pay, even though they have not yet had a chance to review their termination agreements.

Even the employees who decide to stay don’t know how Musk intends to compensate them with stock now that Twitter is a private company, although he said “exceptional” employees will receive stock options as they do in SpaceXhis other private company.
