Hundreds of Twitter employees are expected to be leaving the social media company. This comes immediately after the new owner, Elon Musk, gave his workforce the choice to sign up for "long hours at high intensity" or quit. #RipTwitter has begun to trend on the social media platform amidst all the commotion. This comes in as worried social media users posted about the platform’s fate.  

The "RIP Twitter" comes after hundreds of employees resigned ahead of the deadline given to them by Elon Musk to either agree to his "extremely hardcore" way of work or quit the company. Currently, the firm is going through a lot of turmoil. The hashtag #LoveWhereYouWorked and the salute emoji were used by employees, often referred to as "Tweeps," to tweet about their resignations.
