Twitter's former VP speaks out against Musk's ultimatum to workers

In one of her tweets, Twitter's former Vice President of Global Media Katie Jacobs Stanton said that she would not recommend any person to work at the social media company after it was acquired by Elon Musk.


Calling the $44-billion acquisition a "toxic takeover", she wrote, "In a million years, I never thought I would feel this...but I would not recommend...any brand advertise on Twitter."


Her tweet came in response to Elon Musk sending Twitter staff an email with the subject line “a fork in the road.” He said, “to build a breakthrough Twitter 2.0 and succeed in an increasingly competitive world, we will need to be extremely hardcore. This will mens working long hours at high intensity.”


Twitter employees were all given a timeframe within which to select “yes" on a Google Form that asked if they wanted to stay on at the refurbished Twitter, reported The London Economic. Musk’s move sparked a mass exodus from the platform.


Earlier, a few former Twitter employees filmed a countdown to getting fired from the Boston office after they refused to sign onto Elon Musk’s new “hardcore" Twitter. A viral video shows one Matt Miller, who had worked at Twitter for over nine years, counting down till the moment he and some of his colleagues at the Boston office got fired. Miller and his colleagues did a new year’s-style countdown till they lost access to the company’s portals.
