As noted Bloomberg Citing their own sources, sales specialists on the eve rather willingly expressed their willingness to actively work in the updated company under the leadership of Elon Musk, but this did not save some of them from dismissals. Techs have been louder in expressing their uncertainty about the future of the social network and have more often left the company of their own volition over the past week, according to the source.

On Sunday, Elon Musk even held a general meeting of advertising executives, which was also attended by new division head Chris Riedy.

Technical experts have recently expressed serious concern about the viability of social network infrastructure, since it is extremely difficult to provide an adequate level of service with a significantly reduced team.
