Elon Musk makes a request for engineers to report to him after more than 1,200 employees leave
The new owner of Twitter issued an SOS to the staff on November 19: Anyone who writes software, please report to the 10th floor at2 p.m. today. This came after hundreds of Twitter employees decided to quit on Thursday, ahead of the deadline for Elon Musk's ultimatum to commit to a "hardcore" work environment.
Musk went one step further by asking software workers to travel to San Francisco and physically see the Twitter office.
According to Bloomberg, Musk said in the mail that attendees who are unable to travel to the Bay Area or who have personal or family emergencies will be excused from attending.
"Please email the request below if you're working remotely, and I'll try to speak with you through video. Only those unable to go to Twitter HQ or who have a family emergency will be excused, "Business Insider cited Musk's email sent to staff members at 2:00 PT.
After Twitter's office was locked due to a huge evacuation caused by Musk's ultimatum, a series of mail started to arrive.
According to the New York Times, 1,200 employees quit on November 18th, and this uncertainty over who should still have access to business property resulted.
After taking over the company, Musk fired 7,500 employees, abandoned a work-from-home policy, and instituted punishing hours.
