Twitter has locked down its offices till next week.

Twitter has informed staff that the company’s office buildings would be temporarily closed beginning today.

Workers were informed via a message that the offices would resume on Monday, November 21.

It did not explain the relocation.

The announcement comes amid allegations that a huge number of employees were leaving after new owner Elon Musk ordered them to work “long hours at high intensity” or leave.

The message went on to say: “Please continue to comply with company policy by refraining from discussing confidential company information on social media, with the press, or elsewhere.”

According to sources, Mr. Musk warned Twitter employees last week that they needed to commit to working long hours and be “very hardcore” or leave the firm.

According to the Washington Post, the firm’s new owner stated in an email to employees that if they wanted to continue, they should adhere to the commitment.

Those who did not sign up by Thursday, November 17, will be granted three months’ severance compensation, according to Mr. Musk.

The corporation said earlier this month that it will be laying off around 50% of its workers.

Today’s revelation that Twitter has temporarily closed its operations came amid reports that a substantial number of employees had resigned as a result of Mr. Musk’s new terms.

Employees who were leaving the company tweeted with the hashtag #LoveWhereYouWorked and a saluting emoji.

Before Mr. Musk came over, Twitter employed approximately 7,500 people. The company was also said to have employed thousands of contract workers, the vast majority of whom were reportedly laid off.

Another person stated that they had resigned despite being willing to work long hours.

The world’s richest individual became Twitter’s CEO after purchasing the company for $44 billion (£37 billion) last month.

In response to a question about whether Twitter was on the verge of shutting down following the statement about Twitter’s offices closing, Mr. Musk tweeted:

“The best people are staying, so I’m not super worried”.

He posted a skull and crossbones emoji and a parody of a gravestone with the Twitter logo on it in separate posts.
