After Elon Musk gave employees an ultimatum: stay with the company by "working long hours at high intensity" or quit with three months’ severance pay Twitter announced a temporary closure of its offices. A large number of employees opted for the latter option.

The exact number of employees who chose to leave the company is unknown. The New York Times reported that the number was in the "hundreds," while other early reports suggested the number could be much higher.

The company has already laid off about half of its employees and then had to ask some of them to return in order to realise the vision for the platform that Musk envisioned.

Against this backdrop, Musk has relaxed his earlier decree banning remote working.

All that is required for approval is that your manager takes responsibility for ensuring that you are making an excellent contribution,

Musk wrote in an email on Thursday. However, he still says he will fire managers if remote workers in their teams fail to do their jobs.
