On Thursday night (17), hundreds of employees left Twitter after an ultimatum from Elon Musk, the new owner and CEO of the social network. According to him, employees would have to decide between continuing and embracing a new “hardcore culture” of work or being fired. With the repercussion, projections were made in the company’s building, in San Francisco, USA, cursing the executive.
“Elon Musk, shut the fuck up”, says one of the phrases projected on the building. In another message, an arrow points to the name “@Twitter” on the side of the building and reads: “throwing itself out of business.” The hashtag “#StopToxicTwitter” and “proves Elon Musk is an idiot” also appeared among the projections.
Building projections on Twitter bring phrases that attack Elon Musk, the new owner of the social network.
Most of the projections have been published on social networks. In one video, Elon Musk’s name appears before phrases that are constantly exchanged. All of them, starting from the revolt with the changes that the executive has made in the company, attack the entrepreneur.

Just yesterday, after the departure of the employees, Twitter has decided to block access badges to the site until Monday (21)🇧🇷 The layoffs carried out by Twitter after the acquisition of Musk, valued at US$ 44 billion, have already reached 7,500 employees, many of them in positions and teams that are important for the functioning of the social network.
In response to a network user, Musk was not very concerned about the departure of employees. “The best people are staying so I’m not super worried”he said.
Other social networks gain prominence
According to an employee of the platform, Twitter is in serious danger of “breaking”. Meanwhile, other social networks gained notoriety with the repercussions of the case. Both in Brazil and in the US, names such as Tumblr, Mastodon, Orkut, BlueSky and others have become the trending topics on the social network, while the hashtag “#RIPTwitter” remains in first place.
Twitter trends bring other social networks to those looking to “escape” from the platform.
