The tension continues on Twitter: in the last few hours the BBC revealed an email that Elon Musk sent to his employees announcing the temporary closure of the offices. What marks a new milestone in the troubled arrival of the billionaire to the social network that he bought at the end of October in US $ 44,000 million.

The office closure is the response to the cascade of resignations that arose after the ultimatum that Musk gave his employees last Wednesday. They were literally given the choice between working long hours or leaving the company. And it seems that the second option is the one that is prevailing.

The wave of layoffs and the media reaction have been such that trends have emerged that speak of the death of the social network.

In the last few hours, a video has even emerged showing how Twitter employees sabotaged the digital sign on the facade of one of the Twitter offices to write insults against Elon Musk.

US media say that the resignations would already number in the hundreds, including much of the IT talent that is particularly scarce and in demand by technology companies.

According to information in the Times, Musk himself and his closest advisers are meeting with employees whom they consider essential to the operation of the company and asking them not to leave.

The resignations exacerbate Musk’s already rocky arrival at Twitter in less than two months: for example, in his early days he fired top managers of the social network, and dissolved the board of directors. Also, at the beginning of November the billionaire announced that he will lay off 50% of Twitter’s 7,500 workers. Nearly a week later, he warned employees that Twitter’s bankruptcy was a possibility.

In addition, his plan to charge US$8 a month for certified accounts failed miserably due to the inability to do rigorous verification. The project had to be suspended in a matter of days.

According to the same email from Musk, the Twitter offices will reopen on Monday, November 21.
