Elon Musk today said he wasn’t worried even as employee departures surged on Twitter following his ultimatum asking staff to commit to “hardcore” work.
“The best people stay, so I’m not too worried,” Musk tweeted hours after reports that the social media company had closed its offices due to mass layoffs.

Hundreds of Twitter employees resigned today after Musk gave them an ultimatum to commit to the company’s new “hardcore” work environment or leave. So many employees chose to resign that the company had to temporarily close its office.
Musk has come under fire for radical changes at Twitter, which he bought for $44 billion late last month.
He had already laid off half of the company’s 7,500 employees, scrapped a work-from-home policy and imposed long hours, while his attempts to overhaul Twitter met with chaos and delays.
His faltering attempts to revive user authentication with a controversial subscription service have spawned a slew of bogus accounts and pranks, prompting major advertisers to abandon the platform.
