Pain and Loathing as Twitter Holds Emergency 'All-Call' on Elon Musk's Takeover

Earlier on Monday, explosive news broke that Elon Musk was closing in on a deal to purchase Twitter. At that moment, the hysterics began, and now that the deal is done, the breakdowns have grown exponentially, something RedState recently reported on.

But while we knew the broader left would lose its mind, another big question would be how Twitter’s employees would handle it. After all, it’s currently a far-left company stocked full of far-left ideologues from Silicon Valley. Some weeks ago, when Musk first began to make noises about purchasing the social media giant, I posted this as a reaction.

Well, the time has arrived, and the first rumblings have emerged from a Twitter emergency “all-call” among the current leadership and employees to discuss Musk’s takeover. Here’s a bit of what was discussed.

As you can see, the current leadership doing its best to put on a happy face about all this. Most of them obviously know their days are numbered, though. That one question got asked about Trump shows where many of the employees are, still concerned about politics instead of the health of the company they work for. I won’t post all the rest of the questions, but overall, the mood was apparently uncomfortable and somber.

But how tense are things really? We are getting our first reports involving employee reactions, and they are everything I hoped they’d be.

I don’t see any way that many of these employees can retain their jobs. Twitter is so clearly full of partisan actors who would seek to undermine Musk’s vision that he will have to clean house. He did it at Tesla, and you can bet he’s going to do it here. That’s going to lead to a lot of wild-eyed, dramatic resignations over the next several months.

That’s a good thing, though. It’s long past time that the spoiled, overly-political babies that work for these social media companies got a taste of reality. They’ve been insulated for far too long, essentially recreating their leftist university experiences while at Twitter. I expect Musk to give people a chance, but I can’t imagine he’s going to put up with any nonsense after just putting so much of his personal wealth on the line.

So grab your popcorn, pull up a seat, and enjoy the show. Things are about to get even more nuts, and I’m going to enjoy every second of it.
