Elon Musk is ordering loyalty oaths. Where have we seen this before?

SAN FRANCISCO — Elon Musk issued an ultimatum to Twitter employees Wednesday morning: commit to a new “hardcore” Twitter or leave the company with severance pay.

Employees were told they had to a sign a pledge to stay on with the company. “If you are sure that you want to be part of the new Twitter, please click yes on the link below,” read the email to all staff, which linked to an online form.

Anyone who did not sign the pledge by 5 p.m. Eastern time Thursday would receive three months of severance pay, the message said.

I’d take the severance and run.

    If it were me, I’d follow the advice of the Steve Miller Band and “take the money and run.” In the future, this whole Twitter debacle is going to be Exhibit A for “How to Destroy a Company With Incompetence and Sheer Hubris.”

  2. I’d take the severance and run.

    Run immediately to the bank and cash the check.

    And Elongated Muskrat took over on Oct. 27 so it has been either 1.8 or 2 Scaramuccis. (Wiki is unclear it’s either 10 or 11)

      Direct deposit then change bank accounts because you know the rich man with big mouth is going to be hacked like no ones ever seen before in the history of hacking.

    Who wouldn’t want to work like a slave for a loud mouthed abusive bastard with a terrible record and a chip on his shoulder?


    • …and not the slightest clue of what he wants people to do. He’s changed directions more times more quickly than a compass sitting on a spinning magnet.

      You might be “working hardcore” but between hour 1 and hour 12 of any given day there will be 5 major, mutually incompatible projects thrown at you.

      This isn’t management so much as a weeks-long meth bender
