According to a copy of an email sent by Musk and seen by CNN, Twitter’s new CEO said any employees who fail to comply with the ultimatum by Thursday evening will receive three months’ compensation.
“Going forward, to build Twitter 2.0 penetration and succeed in an increasingly competitive world, we’ll need to be very, very tough,” Musk wrote in the memo.
“This means working long hours at a high intensity. Only exceptional performance will constitute a passing score,” he said.
There have been reports of Twitter employees sleeping on the floor in the office after Musk took over the company.
Musk said earlier that he sometimes works up to 120 hours a week and slept on the floor in the Tesla factory.
In the memo to Twitter employees, Musk said Twitter will be “more engineering-driven” in the future, the report said Wednesday.
“If you’re sure you’d like to be part of the new Twitter, please click yes on the link below by Thursday evening,” he said, referring to an online form.
“Whatever decision you make, we thank you for your efforts to make Twitter a success,” Musk wrote.
Musk has fired at least 20 Twitter employees who criticized his actions either on Twitter or on internal messaging platform Slack, and some have been fired simply for retweeting posts critical of Twitter’s new CEO.
He later posted: “I would like to apologize for dismissing these geniuses. Their immense talent will no doubt be useful elsewhere.”
