Thousands of Twitter employees quit after Musk’s ultimatum

Since billionaire Elon Musk took control of Twitter at the end of October, information about the platform’s financial stability and even a possible bankruptcy has not stopped being published by the world press.

Shortly after taking the helm, Musk fired top executives, announced the layoff of at least half of the team and the closure of idle offices.

This week, Musk asked all employees to work hard, under penalty of being fired. And this is the new chapter of the internal crisis that Twitter is going through. According to the press, thousands of employees resigned on Thursday, the 17th, after Musk’s ultimatum.

“Entire teams representing critical infrastructure are voluntarily leaving the company, leaving it at serious risk of recovery”, would have said one of the engineers who resigned to the North American network. CNBC🇧🇷

After this alleged mass dismissal, on the initiative of the employees themselves, Twitter would have sent employees a notice of immediate closure of several offices of the company. According to the British network BBCwho claimed to have had access to the message, professionals were informed that the company’s offices would reopen on Monday 21st.

In addition to Twitter’s internal crisis, a crisis hits technology companies. Meta, owner of Facebook, announced the dismissal of 11 thousand employees and theamazonout of 10 thousand.

Despite the tension in the company and criticism in the press, Musk said he was not worried about the layoffs. “The best people will stay, so I’m not super worried,” posted the billionaire on his profile.

He himself shared a meme in reference to the “death of Twitter”.

Musk also posted a tweet on Friday, the 18th, saying that “we just hit another all-time high in Twitter usage.”

In another post, responding to users who questioned the supposed demise of the social network, he said that “record numbers of users are logging on to see if Twitter is dead, ironically making it more alive than ever.”

Since Musk took over the platform,the number of users grewbut many advertisers suspended advertising, fearing the new internal policy regarding content mediation and boycotting the billionaire.
