Twitter employees on Friday started a ‘#RIPTwitter’ trend as hundreds of the company’s employees are estimated to be leaving the company.
The hashtag “RIPTwitter” started trending on Twitter where users shared hilarious memes and posts while highlighting that the platform might soon shut down.
Meanwhile, an activist is making his feelings about the Musk era of Twitter known and taking them directly to Twitter headquarters.
Mass resignations at Twitter
The mass resignation at Twitter comes following an ultimatum from the new owner Elon Musk that staffers sign up for “long hours at high intensity” or leave.
Musk unleashed chaos at Twitter just a few weeks after taking the helm of the company. Thousands of company employees were shown exit doors, including CEO Parag Agrawal.
Those who have been laid off have been asked to commit to “hardcore” work or resign with severance pay.
Following this, several furious employees on Twitter announced that they were resigning after Musk’s pledge deadline.
While it’s not clear how many of Twitter’s already-decimated staff took Musk up on his offer, the newest round of departures means the platform is continuing to lose workers just as it is gearing up for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
