Twitter temporarily closes offices after Musk ultimatum prompts new wave of resignations

Twitter said it would be closing all its offices until Monday after a new wave of employees resigned when Elon Musk issued an ultimatum.

Twitter said it would be closing all its offices until Monday, according to an email shared by a departing employee, after a new wave of employees resigned when Elon Musk issued an ultimatum telling them they would need to be willing to commit to a “hardcore” work environment.

“Please continue to comply with company policy by refraining from discussing confidential company information on social media, with the press or elsewhere,” the email shared with CNBC on Thursday said.

Internal Slack messages also shared with CNBC showed engineers and other employees posting goodbye messages to a “watercooler” chat group in the run-up to the 5 p.m. ET Thursday deadline Musk set Wednesday. 

Hundreds of salute emojis (which convey the message “thank you for your service”) streamed by, along with dozens of goodbye messages.

Three Twitter employees who spoke with CNBC asked to remain anonymous, citing fear of professional retaliation. All three were planning to resign Thursday. It was not clear exactly how many Twitter employees resigned.
