Not long ago, they were proudly the tip of the spear in Cancel Culture, defiantly taking the scalp of a sitting President… now they’re being walked out by security.
Cancel culture has come full circle. It has come back to bite Big Tech in the coders.
Elon taking a buzzsaw to the workforce, sure, but it’s much worse than that.
He’s expecting the staff who stay on to actually show up for work.
Elon Musk plans to eliminate about 3,700 jobs at Twitter Inc., or half of the social media company’s workforce, in a bid to drive down costs following his $44 billion acquisition, according to people with knowledge of the matter.
Twitter’s new owner aims to inform affected staffers Friday, said the people, who requested anonymity discussing non-public plans. Musk also intends to reverse the company’s existing work-from-anywhere policy, asking remaining employees to report to offices — though some exceptions could be made, the people said.
Musk and a team of advisers have been weighing a range of scenarios for job cuts and other policy changes at San Francisco-based Twitter, the people said, adding that the terms of the headcount reduction could still change. In one scenario being considered, laid off workers will be offered 60 days’ worth of severance pay, two of the people said. –Bloomberg
Shortly after Elon officially took over, Libs of Tik Tok posted a video of what “A Day in the Life of a Twitter Employee” looked like and in her tweet said that 75% of the workforce was headed out the door. It turns out it wasn’t quite that high, but the video still explains why a culling needed to take place.

Layoffs of 50% are steep, but they are actually a far more modest figure than the 75% that had been predicted when Musk first closed the deal.
They should be ok though. We have it on good authority that the best cure for losing a job is ‘learning to code’ — and if you worked at Twitter, there’s a good chance you already know how to do that.
And for the ones who don’t land on your feet?
Maybe if you hadn’t made a career of destroying people you disagreed with, you’d find some sympathy on our side. But since you went out of your way to ruin lives and collaborate with Biden to push lies, tough luck. That sympathy is in even shorter supply than diesel or heating oil right now.
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
