Twitter's offices abruptly shut down on Thursday as hundreds of employees refused to continue working under Elon Musk's new vision for the social platform.
Less than 50% of the company's remaining staff of roughly 4,000 people signed up to work at "Twitter 2.0," meaning they effectively resigned under the terms Musk offered in a Tuesday ultimatum.
The future of how Twitter will maintain its ability to handle misinformation and operate day-to-day is unclear as the thousands of employees have left in such a short amount of time.
Shortly after news of the latest departures, Elon Musk tweeted, “How do you make a small fortune in social media? Start out with a large one.”
Experts tweeted warnings of a possible Twitter outage, encouraging users to download their Twitter data now.
