With the mass resignation at Twitter after Elon Musk sent an “ultimatum” email to employees, there’s a lot of buzz on social media that Twitter could go offline at any time. Musk sent an email to employees earlier this week, asking everyone to be prepared for Twitter 2.0 and commit to a hardcore work culture or leave with three months’ pay. Many preferred to resign.
Since taking over as Twitter’s CEO, Musk has already hired more than 50% of the company’s staff and nearly 4000 contract workers. About 20 employees corrected Musk after the billionaire said that Twitter performs slowly in many nations, including India. Some workers who criticized Musk in the Slack group also lost their jobs.
With the widespread resignation, Musk has ordered that all offices be closed and that badge access is suspended until November 21. Amid the confusion, hashtags like #RIPTwitter and #GoogByeTwitter are popular on Twitter, and users think the company could shut down at any moment.
However, as there have been no formal announcements about the matter, we are unsure if Twitter will shut down. However, if you believe it will, you can quickly download all of your data, which includes “your profile information, your Tweets, Direct Messages, Moments, media (images, videos, and GIFs you’ve attached to Tweets, Direct Messages, or Moments), a list of your followers, a list of accounts that you are following, your address book, Lists that you’ve created, are a member of, or follow, interest and demographic information that we have deduced.
