SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA: Elon Musk has made his presence felt ever since he became the new CEO of Twitter. From laying off hundreds of workers to making some significant changes on the social media platform, the founder of SpaceX has caused quite a fuss among Twitter users and has been constantly under fire for his new policies and sarcastic tweets. The 51-year-old shared several posts on Friday, November 18, raising serious questions about the future of the platform among users.

Amid the trending #RIPTwitter, Musk shared the "grave meme" where Twitter can be seen being buried at a graveyard. The billionaire seemingly took a shot at those Twitter users who appear convinced that the platform will struggle to survive due to the repeated firing of talent. Musk previously gave Twitter employees a deadline of 5 pm on Thursday, November 17, to decide if they wanted to work for him. He also asked those to leave their jobs who did not share his vision.

A few hours later, Musk posted another tweet saying many users are logging in to see if Twitter is dead, making it more popular than ever. "Record numbers of users are logging in to see if Twitter is dead, ironically making it more alive than ever!" he wrote.

Musk, surprisingly, got a positive response to his tweet from the users who decided to stay on Twitter. One user showed full faith in him by tweeting, "Elon made Tesla electric cars and nearly went bankrupt; Elon went into space exploration and almost went bankrupt. But that has not stopped them from becoming the most valuable companies. It's a similar story with Twitter, Where there is life, there is struggle."

Another user posted a picture of light at the end of a dark tunnel with the caption, "To people saying Twitter is dying". "We are here with you, to help in anyway, and encourage. Will never lose faith in you or Twitter. Twitter will rise. A new beginning," wrote one fan.

One user wrote, "It's hillarious that people think that Twitter is dying while there's literally nothing that indicates that there's something wrong with the platform. Literally nothing changed and it's dying? lol".
