Twitter-addicted Democrats panic as #RIPTwitter trends: 'Could this be my LAST TWEET?'
Elon Musk gives Twitter employees ultimatum

U.S. lawmakers were among those frantically wondering if it was the end for Twitter after hundreds of employees left the company Thursday following an ultimatum from billionaire owner Elon Musk.
Musk informed his employees in an email Wednesday morning that they had until close of business on Thursday to commit to an "extremely hardcore" work ethic or leave the company with severance pay. As the deadline passed, a "mass exodus" of Twitter employees led to #RIPTwitter and #GoodbyeTwitter trending, with stunned users wondering if the platform would still exist when they woke up on Friday.
Among those nervously tweeting about the demise of Twitter were some of the most prolific tweeters in Congress.
"Going to bed, could this be my LAST TWEET?" Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., type-shouted for dramatic effect.
