A new wave of Twitter Inc. employees began posting farewells Thursday, after the deadline passed on an ultimatum Elon Musk issued for them to commit to “long hours at high intensity” or leave.
Many staffers spent the past day weighing their options, after waking up Wednesday to an overnight email in which Mr. Musk told them to fill out a form by Thursday, 5 p.m. ET, to indicate if they want to remain at the company and are willing to be “extremely hardcore.” Employees who don’t opt in will be given three months of severance, Mr. Musk said.
