New Delhi: Twitter employees are exiting the company in numbers after they reportedly received an ultimatum from Elon Musk to either commit to working in an “extremely hardcore” fashion at the company or leave the job.
As per a report by CNN, another employee exodus appears to be underway at Twitter as many employees rejected Elon Musk’s terms for staying with the company, choosing instead to leave. According to CNN, some Twitter employees appeared to publicly declare they had decided to leave the company as the time for responding to Elon Musk’s ultimatum approached.
The hashtag #RIPTwitter is trending on Twitter as disappointed social media users posted about the microblogging site’s sudden changes and downfall. Musk responded to the trend with a meme picture portraying a tombstone with Twitter’s bird logo morphed on it.
“I may be #exceptional, but gosh darn it, I’m just not #hardcore,” tweeted one former employee, Andrea Horst, whose LinkedIn profile still reads “Supply Chain & Capacity Management (Survivor) @Twitter.”
“I walked away from my dream job today with a full heart because of the people I got to work with everyday. Here’s a photo dump of the best 4.5 years a girl could wish for,” Jessalyn Johnson tweeted.
“After 8+ years, I still don’t know what to say in this Tweet. It was one hell of a ride and a highlight of my career,” Twitter employee Brian’s farewell message reads.
“Today I decided to leave Twitter. Words can’t express how grateful I am to have had the opportunity to work in this amazing place with so many talented people. This was, indeed, my dream job. I wish luck and strength to those staying,” another staff named Gala wrote.
