As my colleagues Alex Heath and Mia Sato report, the departure of whole necessary groups leads individuals who know Twitter effectively to suppose that it’s solely a matter of time till issues break down. Based on the New York Times, some “important” workers have been pulled into conferences with Musk and his advisors, who tried to influence them to remain because the time ticked down.
So if that is the tip of Twitter, the one factor left to do is… tweet about it.
Some persons are planning their strikes to Instagram. Mastodon, MySpace, or names even older than that, however a lot of the energetic posts clearly fall someplace alongside the 5 phases of grief.
The temper has shifted from denial to depart house for acceptance and bargaining — and there’s surprisingly little anger.
That even goes for the person who spent months making an attempt to undo his $44 billion bid earlier than being pressured to make good on it and skyrocketing up the Go90 scale of doomed services in pursuit of a $7.99 per 30 days pipe dream.
And sure, he’s tweeting his approach by way of it too.
The microservices are nonetheless dwell sufficient (for now), so whether or not it’s an excessive take, a dangerous DM, or simply one other idle commentary, this feels just like the time to submit that tweet earlier than all of us transfer on to losing time someplace else.
