Elon Musk, Twitter’s new CEO, tweeted a mysterious meme photo on the platform with the caption, “Twitter can be seen being buried at a graveyard” as there was speculation that Twitter might go down on last Friday night after being hit by a wave of mass resignations. The hashtag #RIPTwitter is currently trending on the microblogging platform.

In response to the #RIPTwitter trending topic, Musk tweeted a meme that made fun of the notion that Twitter was no longer in use, claiming that since his $44 billion takeover, the site has seen record user numbers.

According to numerous sources, Twitter is experiencing hundreds of resignations as a result of Musk’s company-wide email, which demanded that employees either commit to a hardcore work environment or depart with severance compensation.

Musk tweeted that ironically, it made Twitter more alive than ever because record numbers of users are logging in to see if the service is still active.

In response to Musk’s tweet, the cryptocurrency and finance news site Watcher Guru shared a video showing an activist shouting obscenities at the billionaire outside the San Francisco office of Twitter, including megalomaniac, petty racist, bankruptcy baby, pressured privilege, mediocre manchild, and worthless billionaire. The channel added that Twitter has temporarily locked all of its offices and restricted access for staff members.

Besides, an employee who is still working at the platform and is working on the revision of the verification process tweeted thanking the tweeps for being such great teammates through the ups and downs. She further said that tweeps who had chosen to make it their last day, she was looking forward to what they do next.

Following a wave of mass resignations since Tesla owner Elon Musk acquired the social media platform for $44 billion, Twitter has now lost nearly half of its 7,500-person workforce as well as an unknown number of contractors.

Musk warned his team in an email sent on last Wednesday that creating a breakthrough Twitter 2.0 would need them to work very hard and that success depends on their ability to put in long hours of work and intense days.

Musk warned his team in an email sent on last Wednesday that creating a breakthrough Twitter 2.0 would need them to work very hard and that success depends on their ability to put in long hours of work and intense days. He later changed his position on requiring everyone to work from the office in a follow-up email sent on the following day. Many staff who survived the layoffs were alienated by his early rejection of remote work.

The most recent round of departures means Twitter is losing staff just as it was preparing for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, one of the busiest events on the platform that can overwhelm its systems if things go wrong, according to reports. Employees or ex-employees were worried about whether their visas might be impacted and how severance promise would be kept.

It’s also noteworthy that Musk’s most recent tweet, which included the image of a grave, appeared just a few minutes after he posted that Twitter usage had reached yet another record high, though he skipped to include any figures.

During the widespread resignation, the RIPTwitter hashtag emerged and is currently taking over the social media network. After a wave of mass resignations at the social networking site on Thursday, Twitter users were saying goodbye with humour and memes.

Users paid tribute to the platform late on Thursday and early on Friday with a variety of hashtags and posts, including the ones with the hashtags #RIPTwitter, #TwitterDown and #GoodByeTwitter

Users paid tribute to the platform late on Thursday and early on Friday with a variety of hashtags and posts, including the ones with the hashtags #RIPTwitter, #TwitterDown and #GoodByeTwitter. Besides, employee numbers drastically decreased since Musk took over the platform as the Tesla CEO and first dismissed developers who didn’t agree with him before laying off about 3,700 people.

Throughout it all, Musk has been tweeting jokes about the apparent meltdown.

Musk had finalised his takeover of Twitter on October 27, 2022, for a reported $44 billion. Since completing his takeover, he’s launched a controversial $8 Twitter Blue plan that grants users a verified check mark. This resulted in an increase in the number of parody accounts. Musk subsequently delayed new Twitter Blue signups, revealing on Tuesday that he was punting the relaunch to November 29 to make sure it is perfect.
