Secrets from Musk’s last meeting on Twitter. Congressmen are calling for an investigation

The World Cup usually brings a rush of activity TwitterIt’s expected to happen again with the tournament starting this weekend. But the recent churn of thousands of employees from the company and ongoing internal unrest are raising questions about the site’s resilience.

Hours before Elon Musk’s Thursday deadline for Twitter employees to decide whether to stay or quit their jobs, the social media company appeared to be in shambles, according to America’s New York Times.

Musk and his advisors held meetings with some of the Twitter employees they felt were crucial to preventing them from leaving, four people familiar with the talks said. Musk has sent confusing messages about the company’s telecommuting policy and appears to have backed down from letting people work from home before warning their managers, according to people and internal emails obtained by the Post.

Two people said the resignations are ongoing all the time. And until the deadline, 5 p.m. ET Hundreds of Twitter employees appear to have decided to leave with the option of a three-month severance package, the insider said.

The resignations have added to the turmoil on Twitter since Musk completed the $44 billion acquisition last month.

The billionaire fired half of Twitter’s 7,500 employees, firing dissidents and telling employees they had to be a “very hard core” to make the company succeed.

On Wednesday, Musk gave the remaining Twitter employees less than 36 hours to leave or commit to building Twitter. He said those who leave the company will receive a 3-month end-of-service bonus, which he believes will make the company more competitive and also provide an opportunity to cut costs and rid the company of disgruntled workers.

And laying off so many employees at such a stressful time has raised questions about how Twitter can continue to operate effectively.

5 people said Musk has brought in some engineers and managers from his other companies, such as electric carmaker Tesla, and many of them are just beginning to accelerate understanding of how the social media service works.

Claims to investigate Musk’s policies

And Twitter not only faces internal challenges, it also has to do with Musk’s ownership and policies. On Thursday, seven U.S. Democratic senators called on the Federal Trade Commission to investigate whether the company has violated a consumer protection agreement with the agency since Musk took office.

The letter followed the resignation of Twitter’s security chiefs last week after it appeared Musk had changed some of the company’s data security practices.

On Thursday afternoon, Musk sent out an email apparently retracting his stance on working from home. “In terms of remote work, all you have to do is take responsibility for your manager to make sure you’re an excellent contributor,” he said.

The email came hours after a former Twitter employee filed a lawsuit against the company alleging Musk’s new policy of discriminating against workers with disabilities.

Three people reported that Musk’s team also held meetings with undecided employees who play a key role in Twitter’s operations to try to persuade them to stay. Musk said in his presentation that he knows how to win and that anyone who wants to win should join him, said a person familiar with the meeting.

At one such meeting, some employees were called into a conference room in the San Francisco office while others participated via video conference. Some of the callers began hanging up via video and apparently decided to leave, although Musk continued to speak, two people familiar with the meeting said.
