Black Twitter Holds The Ultimate Homegoing Celebration For The Fallen Social Media Platform

One thing about Black Twitter– it's gone show up and out! 🤣

As Twitter goes to hell in a handbasket, Black Twitter is mourning the potential loss of the popular social media platform.

Reuters reported that there had been a mass exodus of Twitter employees under new CEO Elon Musk’s guidance. On Thursday, over 500 employees chucked the deuces to the platform’s new owner in an internal chat; a source told the publication. The employees’ departures varied in emotion– from some “freeing” themselves of Musk’s shackles to others “reluctantly” leaving.

Earlier this month, Musk reportedly told his staff that they’d be working 84-hour work weeks–  7 days/ 12- hour shifts – which is insane. The news came after he had implemented stringent deadlines and deliverables that if they weren’t successful, folks would lose their jobs. Managers were sleeping at Twitter offices under the South African native’s tyranny to get the job done.

With the future state of Twitter hanging in limbo, Black Twitter went on and held a funeral for the social media platform.  And serving hilarity and poignancy as the sub-section is known for, the tweets were epic.

Here are some of the best tweets from the homegoing celebration.

You can’t outdo Black people.
