Musk has yet to speak on the subject, except for his joke in response to the numerous resignations. Musk was meeting with top employees to try to persuade them to stay, according to a current employee and a recently deceased employee in contact with Twitter colleagues.
Musk said on Twitter late Thursday that he wasn’t concerned about the resignations because “the best people are staying.”
Amid the resignations, the billionaire owner also said Twitter usage had hit an all-time high.
“And we just hit a new record for Twitter usage…” he said in a tweet, without going into details.
