This Friday, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ) spoke out in support of Twitter CEO Elon Musk amid the current Twitter trend, “RIP Twitter“. The trend #RIPTwitter burst onto the scene after the recent ultimatum given by the CEO of Twitter to choose between working intensely, extremely hard, long hours or losing their jobs.
Binance CEO supports Elon Musk
In a recent tweet, the CEO of Binance highlighted the importance of FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) in the context of Twitter. Binance’s top employee said: “The more successful you are, the more people have doubts about you. FUD makes you stronger, not weaker.“
Discussing the same trend, “RIP Twitter“, Billy Markus, creator of Doge, attacks Twitter and compares it to the demise of Google Plus. Markus also goes after Twitter employees in his recent thread of tweetssaying company employees plan to run with the cash instead of working long hours to save a “dying business” (Twitter).
apparently many more employees at twitter are deciding to take the money and run rather than work long hours with less perks to try to save a dying company, which i think is pretty expected
good luck to them all and i would expect many things to be on fire here for a bit 🤣
