After laying off half the workforce, Twitter boss Musk delivers an ultimatum to the rest. Either employees endure overtime or leave.
Twitter’s new owner, Elon Musk, has promised hard work to the text messaging service’s employees, amid rude announcements and threats of further layoffs. In a memo sent to employees by multiple US media outlets, Musk wrote that “we will have to be extremely tough” for Twitter to be successful in an increasingly competitive world.
Those who do not click on a link confirming that they “want to be a part of the new Twitter” by Thursday evening, New York time, will be deemed terminated. “Whatever you decide, we appreciate your efforts to make Twitter a success,” Musk said.
