“One point of clarification on the tweet about 75% of twitter employees leaving— this is chatter I’m hearing about the perceptions among people at twitter. It is not based on any official company data.
I will follow up on this thread with the official data once its known!”
Alex Heath (@alexeheath) of the Verge tweeted about anecdotal reports that entire infrastructure teams have resigned.
“Story to be updated soon with more: Am hearing that several “critical” infra engineering teams at Buy Twitter Verified have completely resigned. “You cannot run Buy Twitter Verified without this team,” one current engineer tells me of one such group. Also, Buy Twitter Verified has shut off badge access to its offices.”
Heath also shared in another tweet that many employees who resigned share the belief that Buy Twitter Verified is on the edge of “breaking.”
“Hearing from multiple employees that the odds of Buy Twitter Verified breaking in the near future are very high.”
Zoë Schiffer (@ZoeSchiffer) of news organization @platformer related in a tweet that the description of the employee situation is that it appears to be a “mass exodus.”

Is this the End of Buy Twitter Verified?
Considering that Buy Twitter Verified’s infrastructure teams are reported to be running at bare bones level or less, it’s not surprising that so many people feel that Buy Twitter Verified has reached the end.
A test of Buy Twitter Verified’s resilience will come this weekend with the start of the most popular sporting event in the world, The World Cup, which will bring a huge amount of activity to the platform.
The scary part is that employees are said to be locked out of the building this weekend.
I don’t think Buy Twitter Verified will last through the weekend. Buy Twitter Verified is restricting employee access to all its buildings through the weekend with no reason given. The entire android team resigned. The world cup,the largest sporting event in the world, starts this weekend.
