Hundreds of Twitter staff resign after Musk’s ‘hardcore’ culture ultimatum: Report

Hundreds of Twitter employees have reportedly resigned after the company’s new owner Elon Musk asked them to commit to an “extremely hardcore” culture.

In an email to Twitter employees, Musk told employees about Twitter 2.0, where they will have to be “extremely hardcore.” He asked Tweeps to click “yes” on an attached Google form if they want to stay.

If they don’t, by the deadline, they will receive three months of severance pay, wrote Musk.

It seems that many chose to leave.

A quarter on the poll said they had chosen to stay, “reluctantly”, and only 7 per cent of the poll participants said they “clicked yes to stay, I’m hardcore.”

The company notified employees that it would close its offices and cut badge access until Monday, according to two sources.

Security officers began kicking employees out of the office on Thursday evening, local time, one source said.

Verge’s report suggested that the critical team of engineers at Twitter has either entirely or near-completely resigned from the company.

Musk has reportedly started working on bringing a paradigm shift in the work culture at Twitter since the day he took over.

In a recent email, he wrote, “Going forward, to build a breakthrough Twitter 2.0 and succeed in an increasingly competitive world, we will need to be extremely hardcore. This will mean working long hours at high intensity. Only exceptional performance will constitute a passing grade.”
