Social Media Users Have Sounded off With Hilarious Memes About Twitter's Shutdown
Twitter shutting down has become the talk of the popular app. And of course, memes ranging from seriously fun to super sad are making their rounds.
It may be the end of an era! Twitter has reigned supreme for years. It’s quick to deliver breaking news. It's also a great app for debating trending topics, and it gives folks the ability to connect with public figures seamlessly.
However, new Twitter CEO Elon Musk may be responsible for its downfall any minute now.
According to Insider, company officials decided to shut down office operations on Thursday, Nov. 17, 2022, after many employees were not on board with Elon’s new vision for the app. As a result, they essentially resigned from their positions, which leaves a giant hole in operations for the app. Offices are expected to reopen on Nov. 21, 2022, according to BBC News. But it's unclear how many employees — you know, the people who keep the site up and running — will be there when they do.
