#RIPTwitter: Users react over possible shutdown following reports of workers resigning

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Twitter employees on Friday launched a ‘#RIPTwitter’ trend as hundreds of company’s employees are estimated to be leaving the beleaguered social media company.

The mass resignation at Twitter comes following an ultimatum from new owner Elon Musk that staffers sign up for “long hours at high intensity,” or leave.

In a poll on the workplace app Blind, which verifies employees through their work email addresses and allows them to share information anonymously, 42% of 180 people chose the answer for “Taking exit option, I’m free!” While only 7% of the poll participants said they “clicked yes to stay, I’m hardcore.”

Musk unleashed chaos at Twitter just a few weeks since he took the helm of the company. Thousands of company staff were shown exit doors, citing the “loss in revenue of the company” as the reason.

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.
