The world's richest person became Twitter's chief executive after buying the firm last month in a $44bn (£37bn) deal.

Before Mr. Musk took control of Twitter the company had about  7,500 staff, and thousands of contract workers.

This week, Mr. Musk told Twitter staff that they had to commit to be working "long hours at high intensity" or leave.

There are signs that large numbers of workers have resigned because they have not accepted Mr. Musk's new terms.

Though Musk says he is not concerned about the scale of the departures, there are signs that they are higher than expected.

Mr. Musk don’t seemed concerned about the reports and he keep on tweeting that “The best people are staying, so I'm not super worried".

According to one of the employee -everyone in their team had been sacked and that there will be less than 2,000 people left in the company.

Workers were told that the company's office buildings will be temporarily closed, and it would reopen on Monday 21 November. Without any reason.

The platform won’t survive much longer under Musk’s iron fist, a tenure already stained by reckless self-indulgence.

#LoveWhereYouWorked and a saluting emoji been tweeted by the employees to show that they were leaving the firm.
