yeah, thank you for bringing this up and getting this thread back on track, I think people are getting mad distracted talking about Elons many sins (which there are SO MANY), from the fact that Twitter went from 7,500 employees to 3,700 and it's still dropping. Like it's normal to lose people when you buy a company, and especially if a company is merging with another company and can replace the hires. But this is about one guy who just bought ownership of the company. That was it. All he had to do was NOTHING and he would have been successful. All he had to do was NOTHING.
Like he's being the most abusive boss possible to clear that entire company of human beings. He's doing things far beyond what even legally allowed when it comes to firings and workplace hours, and will be under lawsuits for eons after the dust settles. And right now the computer services team that was 100 people, the team that keeps that site running, is now 4 people. It is incredible that twitter is still running, but can it just cut out? Yes. But I have seen valid social media websites become graveyards for less.
And like I've been on that website for 10 years, with other accounts (my current is only a year old) but this isn't the first time I lost an art social media site, nor will it be the last time. Did twitter get me some sales? yes. But it's time to leave twitter.
Lately been jumping over to instagram and tik tok. They've added templates there that make it easier to make video out of still images, which is nice since you sort of have to. Especially if you use capcut (which is free phone app) you can use capcut templates for tik toks. Tumblr has been more active as well, which was surprising.
