Twitter staff had two days to make a decision, until 2 p.m. 17 on Thursday (23 Polish time). Some even publicly suggested they were going to quit their jobs. One former employee described the new wave of resignations as “an exodus.”
In an online poll, 42 percent of 180 employees surveyed wanted to leave Twitter, according to Reuters. A quarter said they were “reluctant” to stay, and only 7% said they would. They announced that they would stay with the company and dedicate themselves to the “hard work” that Musk had previously mentioned. According to an anonymous agency source, Musk met with some top executives and persuaded them to stay at the company.
“While it’s unclear how many employees have chosen to stay, some employees are reluctant to work at a company that has ruthlessly changed the (work) culture with an emphasis on long hours and a hectic pace,” Reuters commented.
In a new message to company employees who chose to stay on, Musk said Twitter’s offices are temporarily closed until Monday. He did not give a reason for his decision, but urged employees to “abide by company policy” and refrain from sharing confidential information about it in the press or on social media.
Before Musk took control of Twitter, the service employed about 7,500 people. People. Half of them were released in November. Asked about his concerns that Twitter might shut down, Musk replied: “They’re with the best, so I’m not too worried.” (PAB)
