Take the three months! Get out of there! It's coming from the inside.
The employees should be careful what they say and how they handle any departure. If they voluntarily click any button such as "Yes I want to leave," then suddenly they've quit rather than being fired, and they might lose their benefits or severance or stocks or whatever else they would be entitled to if fired. It's probably afoul of various California employment laws, what Elon is doing, but I am no expert in such.
Maybe just don’t choose “I want to leave” and quiet quit instead.

Last night on Twitter was nuts. Almost all of the engineers quit the company; the site is run by a skeleton crew of miscreants now. Everybody was saying goodbye and posting Titanic sinking memes and such things. Meanwhile:

I am actually enjoying the Twitter meltdown aside from all the employees having to find other jobs. He obviously has zero respect for any Twitter employee. His heavy handed approach has quickly led to the demise of the company he just bought and there is no one to blame but himself. I won’t lose any sleep if Twitter went away.

Another billionaire with a massive ego who has no respect for those who work for him. Bezos just simultaneously fired half his employees and gave Dolly Pardon 100 million dollars to spend on whatever charities she wants. There is something wrong with that. We can’t afford to keep you guys on the payroll anymore, so you are fired. I have so much money from this company that I am running out of ways to spend it so I will give $100,000,000 away to make myself look good.

I still refuse to use Tiktok and think it's dangerous. Wouldn't surprise me if they ban it in the US or force the company to sell it to a US ownership.

They're saying now that Elon has people working on a brain implant the size of a coin. Who in their right mind would get that thing implanted? I also think it's rich that people were making up conspiracy theories about COVID vaccines containing evil microchips in them, but now some of those same people think it would be cool to voluntarily get a microchip put in their brain.

I don’t doubt some day they will implant chips that enhance our lives. I’m going to France. I better make sure my Universal translator is working.
