#RIPTwitter trends as users anticipate for possible collapse
Rest In Peace Twitter (RIPTwitter) is currently trending on the microblogging app as users await the potential collapse of the site.
There have been mass resignations at Twitter on Thursday evening by workers as #RIPTwitter and #GoodbyeTwitter trend on the bird app.
According to reports from New York Times, Twitter employees were given up to 5 pm on Wednesday to make a decision to commit to the company and continue their employment in building “Twitter 2.0”. However, hundreds of employees chose to leave the company.
A lot of Twitter users have tweeted with the new hashtag also lambasting Elon Musk for destroying the communication app a month after taking over.
Hundreds of Twitter employees quit after Musk gave them the choice to either accept the new "hardcore" work climate at the firm or part ways. Unlimited exploitation of labor is the core foundation of capitalism a model that Musk is proudly supporting.#RIPTwitter #GoodByeTwitter pic.twitter.com/2H7XPidQRM

Twitter currently has no communications department to contact for comment.
As of Thursday evening, Musk himself had not specifically addressed the resignations, tweeting only at 7:25 p.m., “How do you make a small fortune in social media? Start out with a large one.”
The company’s offices are set to be closed through Monday for all employees.
Twitter was founded in 2006 in San Francisco.
