Elon Musk’s ultimatum to the employees to be ‘extreme hardcore’ or lose results in protesting as #RIPTwitter becomes a trend.
Twitter is in the news again for a new reason as a protest from the employees and staff lead to another trend that has the world talking about it. Elon Musk, also the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, who recently took over the social networking platform, has been bringing in reforms to the company that hasn’t been received positively. The latest was his ultimatum to the employees that demanded them to either choose between being ‘extreme hardcore’ or lose. The employees responded to it with mass resignation and started the #RIPTwitter trend.
According to the ultimatum, Musk wants his employees and staff to agree to work intense, long hours or lose their jobs. Instead, the employees tweeted about their resignation by using the hashtag #LoveWhereYouWorked and the salute emoji in protest of Musk’s latest ultimatum. Musk has been facing criticism as he already fired half of the company’s 7,500 staff earlier this month.
The platform has now become a ground for people to discuss their other options if Twitter shutdowns. Social media users have been talking about bringing back Orkut or shifting to Tumblr as a new alternative.
We might not be sure if the platform will stay or shut down, but Twitterati’s did not miss the opportunity to jump of the #RIPTwitter, #GoodbyeTwitter trend. Like always, they had their funny take on it showing us what we will miss if the platform shuts down.
And how can Musk stay away from this –
