Twitter Ex-Employees Are Using the Same 'Salute' Emoji to Mark Their Exit


Twitter Ex-Employees Are Using the Same 'Salute' Emoji to Mark Their Exit


The growing number of former Twitter employees are all posting the same emoji on the social media site to mark their departure.

The platform itself, as well as the company's internal Slack groups, were inundated with "greetings" emoji.

Twitter Resigns Or Is It Fired Following Elon Musk Takeover

It will be shared on the internet when the "Tweeps" quit or are fired after Elon Musk's takeover.

They had to agree to work to Musk's "extremely hardcore" standard by 5 p.m. Thursday. If they refused, they were unemployed. The ultimatum seemed to backfire, as many Twitter employees decided to miss the deadline, leave the company, and accept severance pay.

Meanwhile, the salute has organically come to symbolize Twitter staff committed to Musk's changes.

Twitter - The Social Watercooler

Twitter has an internal Slack channel known as a "social water cooler". It's filled with emojis because staff use it as a quick shorthand to quickly say hello to co-workers.

They have to be fast. In many cases, employees have found themselves suddenly locked out of company computers without warning and their office key cards have stopped working.

Yesterday Twitter announced that it will temporarily close its offices.

The hashtags #RIPTwitter and #TwitterDown started gaining popularity on Twitter, with many users posting links to their profiles on rival platforms like Mastodon.

Elon Musk Lays Off Half of Twitter's Staff

Since acquiring the company on Oct. 23, Musk has laid off about half of Twitter's 7,500 employees.

It is estimated that at least half of the remaining staff have chosen to leave rather than work on Twitter 2.0.

According to tech site The Verge, remaining Twitter employees expect the platform to break soon. "Looks like all the people who made this place amazing are leaving," Twitter staffers told the site.

“It will be extremely difficult for Twitter to get rid of this, no matter how hardcore the people who are left try to be.”
