    Is this the end of Twitter? Chaos erupts as hundreds of employees quit

    Chaos erupted on Friday as hundreds of employees quit after a ‘hardcore’ ultimatum from Twitter CEO Elon Musk.

    THE QUESTION ON EVERYONE’S LIPS: IS THIS THE END OF TWITTER?

    The billionaire demanded in an email they all agree to work ‘long hours at high intensity’ or LEAVE. 

    He tried to get all staff on board with his new vision by clicking on a link in the email or otherwise choosing to leave. 

    Twitter staff who don’t take the vow will be given three months severance pay and join the 3,700 staff already laid off since he took control.

    TWITTER HAS REPORTEDLY INFORMED EMPLOYEES THAT ALL OFFICES ARE TEMPORARILY CLOSED

    Shortly after the deadline, “Fortune Magazine” reporter Kylie Robison tweeted that about 75% of the workforce (under 3 000 employees) had not clicked “yes”.

    Twitter has reportedly informed employees that all offices are temporarily closed, and badge access has been stopped, effective immediately. There are no specifics as to why this is.

    HERE IS THE FULL EMAIL THAT ELON SENT OUT

    Here’s the full email that Elon Musk sent to Twitter employees on Wednesday (transcribed by CNBC):

    From: Elon Musk

    To: Team [at Twitter]

    Subj. A Fork in the Road

    Date: Nov. 16, 2022 [time stamp removed]

    Going forward, to build a breakthrough Twitter 2.0 and succeed in an increasingly competitive world, we will need to be extremely hardcore. This will mean working long hours at high intensity. Only exceptional performance will constitute a passing grade.

    Twitter will also be much more engineering-driven. Design and product management will still be very important and report to me, but those writing great code will constitute the majority of our team and have the greatest sway.

    At its heart, Twitter is a software and servers company, so l think this makes sense.

    Anyone who has not done so by 5pm ET tomorrow (Thursday) will receive three months of severance.

    Whatever decision you make, thank you for your efforts to make Twitter successful.

    Elon

    ELON CONTINUED ARROGANTLY CONTINUED TO TWEET ON FRIDAY

    This did not stop Elon from arrogantly continuing to tweet despite the chaos.
