#RIPTwitter was trending on Twitter as of 18 November to mark the departure of large numbers of employees of the American social media company, who are walking out in protest at the actions of the company’s new owner, Elon Musk.

The departures, came after Musk, who is also the CEO of Tesla, the American electric vehicle and clean energy company, sent a companywide message to Twitter staff to sign up for “long hours at high intensity” or leave.

Reports stated that numerous people have left the firm after Musk’s demand.

Twitter staff had until the end of the workday on 17 November to respond to a Google form with “yes” if they wanted to carry on working for what Musk has labelled Twitter 2.0. If they rejected the form, 18 November would be their last day working for the company.

According to The Verge, people who saw Twitter’s Slack channel said employees who had rejected Musk’s new demands were announcing they were leaving and saying goodbye to their former colleagues.

The Guardian reported that it was unclear exactly how many people left the social media company, but it could be as many as 50% of its workforce.

One employee said via Slack: “I’m not pressing the button. My watch ends with Twitter 1.0. I don’t wish to be part of Twitter 2.0.”


Staff locked out of their offices

Following on from the fallout of Twitter 2.0 demands, Twitter staff have been locked out of their offices.

Employees were sent a message, seen by the BBC, that told them the offices would reopen 21 November.

The reasoning behind this move was not revealed in the message.
