SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA: Just two days after Elon Musk issued an ultimatum to Twitter employees to either sign up for "long hours at high intensity" or quit on November 16, the "#RIPTwitter" trend began as hundreds of employees decided to resign. With one of many writing, “It’s been a pleasure tweeting with y’all for the past 13 years.” Following this, Musk reacted by saying, “we just hit another all-time high in Twitter usage lol," and added, “Let that sink in…”

Several reports indicated that Musk abruptly shut down the offices on Thursday, November 17, due to mass resignations. As per BBC, the memo the company sent out to staff announcing the office closure read, “Effective immediately, we are temporarily closing our office buildings and all badge access will be suspended. Offices will reopen on Monday, November 21st. Thank you for your flexibility. Please continue to comply with company policy by refraining from discussing confidential company information on social media, with the press or elsewhere. We look forward to working with you on Twitter’s exciting future.”
