The billionaire reportedly met with "critical" employees before the Thursday ultimatum, but many staffers left anyway.

Hundreds of Twitter employees appeared to flee on Thursday after Elon Musk demanded that only “extremely hardcore” staffers remain as he seeks to transform the social media giant to fit his own vision.

Musk sent a memo to staffers Wednesday morning saying Twitter would only have room for those prepared to work “long hours at high intensity,” echoing expectations at his other companies, Tesla and SpaceX.

“Going forward, to build a breakthrough Twitter 2.0 and succeed in an increasingly competitive world, we will need to be extremely hardcore,” he wrote. “Only exceptional performance will constitute a passing grade.”

The email asked staffers to click on a link if they were prepared to meet those expectations. Anyone who declined would be offered three months’ severance, it said.

Twitter's death-rebirth, death-rebirth cycle seems to run multiple times each day. Elon Musk has the app surgically attached to his palm. Staff flees or gets fired. What can we learn from the Tesla/SpaceX CEO's leadership of this new venture? Is he thriving on chaos to create a free-speech revolution, or is he driving the social platform to a well-deserved grave?

While the Press Melts Down Over 'Safety' On Twitter, Musk Purges Sexual Predators

All of this media posturing is purely being done for the mirror. The proof of the self-involvement is in what these reporters are not reporting on. One of the efforts Musk has been undertaking, under the radar, is in working to purge the site of sexual offenders and those trafficking in child pornography. Eliza Bleu is a human trafficking and sexual victims advocate who has been lobbying the site to address activities in these crimes for years.

Bleu announced this weekend that Musk has been spearheading efforts to eradicate known hashtags that those involved in the trafficking of this pernicious material have been using for some time. 

The amazing thing is that this activity has been in operation for some time without these steps having been taken. It was just in September when she highlighted a case of a 13-year-old who was sexually exploited and had images of the criminal activity being shared on the platform. After reaching out to management it is said they did little to remove the material. The shame is that this move by Musk is being completely eclipsed by the focus on other aspects of his takeover and the reliance on melodramatics of the internal operations since he took the company over.:snip:

Jack White Torches Elon Musk’s ‘A**hole Move’ With Scathing KKK Analogy
"Absolutely disgusting," the White Stripes founder said, slamming Twitter's billionaire owner.

Rock star Jack White tore into billionaire Twitter owner Elon Musk on Monday for allowing former President Donald Trump back onto the social media platform.

“Absolutely disgusting, Elon. That is officially an asshole move,” the White Stripes founder wrote to Musk on Instagram.

White accused Musk of “trying to help a fascist have a platform so you can eventually get your tax breaks,” saying he was “a believer in free speech” but wouldn’t “let the KKK hold a rally at our record label’s performance stage.”

“That’s one of the platforms we control and have a say in, it’s not town square operated by the government,” he explained. “And if I owned a gas station, I wouldn’t be selling the KKK gasoline to burn crosses either and then wash my hands as if I didn’t help facilitate hatred.”
