This is coming after the mass sacking (3,700 workers) of the new Twitter owner. The lead engineers have also resigned.

Another employee who has resigned has this to say;
“Today I decided to leave Twitter. Words cannot express how grateful I am to have had the opportunity to work in this amazing place with so many talented people”
What Is Musk’s Reaction?
The report has however claimed that Musk is unmoved by the current happenings in the tech company. In his reply, he said, “the best people are staying, so I am not super worried.”
I think he should be worried because the trending hashtags #RIPTwitter and #GoodbyeTwitter could be true after all. With many planning to leave the Twitter platform, the company is definitely on the verge of collapse.
We however hope he has a change of heart and more primitive measures soon.
