Twitter Employees Leave in Droves After Hearing Elon Musk’s “Hardcore” Ultimatum

A further blow to Elon Musk’s Twitter was reported on CNBC on Thursday when hundreds of staff quit before the new owner’s “ultimatum” to commit to a “hardcore” work environment. Employees, including engineers, began leaving the firm in droves the day after Musk delivered his ultimatum, with many posting farewell comments and salute emojis in company-wide chat rooms.

According to a memo seen by Bloomberg, when a substantial number of staff decided to quit, Twitter locked its offices until Monday to minimize any uncertainty over who still has access to the business property. CNBC reports that it is unclear how many Twitter employees are part of the mass exodus, but that three individuals have shared their plans to quit out of fear of professional retaliation.

“Entire teams representing critical infrastructure are voluntarily departing the company, leaving the company at serious risk of being able to recover. We are skilled professionals with lots of options, so Elon has given us no reasons to stay and many to leave,” the engineer said on the situation.

The resignations began trickling in on Thursday, a day after Musk made his now-famous ultimatum. The new owner warned employees in a company-wide email to get ready to work long hours with “high intensity,” adding that “we will need to be incredibly hardcore” if Twitter is going to be successful. If employees did not fill out the online form by Thursday night, they will be terminated without pay and offered three months’ severance instead.

Slack, Twitter’s internal messaging system, reportedly showed low activity as Musk’s staff spent days reviewing messages or tweets critical of him or his conduct in order to terminate approximately two dozen employees, as reported by The New York Times.

The tycoon had announced his intention to lay off 3,700 workers during the first week. He has openly fired most of Twitter’s upper management and, more recently, engineers who argued against his policies. Since his $44 billion takeover last month, the Tesla owner has warned that Twitter might go bankrupt if it doesn’t start earning more revenue. Musk has already altered the company’s work-from-home policy and warned employees to anticipate 80-hour work weeks and no free food.
