‘Goodbye Twitter’ trends on Twitter after Elon Musk’s ultimatum leads to mass resignation
After Elon Musk’s ultimatum, hundreds of employees have resigned from Twitter leading to a mass resignation. Now, very few employees are left to fix things and internet users are bidding adieu to the platform, predicting its end.
Hashtags Goodbye Twitter, RIP Twitter, and Twitter Down have been trending on Twitter. Netizens are checking the platform every second to see if it is still live since the mass resignation.
Twitter offices have shut down and hundreds of employees have handed in their resignations, after receiving an ultimatum email from Elon Musk.
Twitter Chief Musk told employees to either commit to an “extremely hardcore” culture at the company that involves “long hours at high intensity” or leave with severance. Employees were asked to respond by Thursday by clicking an icon.
These ‘hardcore changes’ in culture will include working long hours at high intensity and exceptional performance standards. The platform will be also shifting to an engineer-driven operation.

Twitter employee Alex Cohen, who was in charge of managing badge access to Twitter offices, said that Musk and his team accidentally shut off all access badges.
Before the mass employee exodus at Twitter, reports say that Musk and his advisers held a few meetings with critical employees to get them to stay.
Earlier this month, Musk had fired top executives, laid off half his team strength, fired a few more with a Tweet, and rehired a few employees back admitting his guilt. Musk has also been sued by ex-employees for getting laid off without a 60-day notice.
To protest against the recent changes, an activist is projecting multiple messages onto Twitter headquarters in San Francisco.
