Elon Musk To Relaunch Twitter Blue While Giving Staff An Ultimatum…. They Must Choose To Be “Hardcore” Or Leave

The initial launch of Twitter Blue was a train wreck next to a dumpster fire to put it mildly. But Elon Musk is going to the well once again because he desperately needs the money.

Based on this Tweet, I am guessing that he wanted to launch sooner because he desperately needs the money. But had to delay that because I am guessing that he has to figure out how to launch this without creating the disaster that he did the first time around. Though he did say this:

How is this even possible? I ask because he fired anyone who would be capable of doing this confirmation.

I’m calling it now. Prepare for train wreck next to a dumpster fire 2.0 as Musk is clearly in Hail Mary country here.

In other news. Musk is now giving staff a choice. Be “hardcore” or leave:

Elon Musk sent a message to Twitter staff telling them that they had until Thursday to consider whether they wanted to stay on for “working long hours at high intensity” or take a severance package of three months pay.

Musk told Twitter employees that anyone who had not clicked on a link confirming “you want to be part of the new Twitter” by Thursday evening New York time would be considered to have quit.

“Whatever decision you make, thank you for your efforts to make Twitter successful,” the message said.

It would not surprise me if a lot of people just said “I’m out of here” and packed up their things and left. Musk may be in for a reality check on Thursday when he doesn’t get the number of people that he thinks he will who make the choice to be “hardcore”. Then you have to wonder what he does at that point. And how he keeps the lights on as a result.
