Huh, guess I was wrong about this... I figured it would never happen. I still think this will only end badly for Twitter.

Uh oh. The subset of software engineers that think the workplace is the place for extreme politics are going to jump ship. I wonder what percentage of the quitters drive Tesla vehicles, I’d suspect double digits.

I suspect that Twitter pays well, and has jobs with good content, good working conditions and good benefit packages. I imagine they will have little problem filling any positions that become vacant. Just my guess.
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

I don't see why any employee would want to leave. Musk's track record with labor is pretty good and he has made many of his workers rich. I imagine his HR guys have boatloads of resumes from people eager to work with/for him.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Like most tech companies these days, many Twitter employees permanently work from home.

Apparently Musk isn’t a fan of permanently working from home. Gonna find out the hard way that software companies <> car companies.

Really?? I mean, I know a lot of tech nerds love him, but I've been hearing for a while now how he treats a lot of his employees like ****.
