RIP Twitter memes are going viral and they're truly god tier
18 November 2022, 12:26
Elon Musk is now also tweeting memes about the possible flop of his own $44 billion company.
Listen to this article
Is Twitter shutting down? Is Twitter dying? What is going ON? No idea tbh, but here's a brief explainer and loads of memes about it.
Over the past 12 hours, sources have reported that Twitter is on the brink of collapse. The reports come after hundreds of employees quit their jobs following an ultimatum issued to them by new owner Elon Musk. The ultimatum? Be "extremely hardcore" and work "long hours at high intensity" ...or leave.
According to a report from Reuters, a lot of those departures include engineers responsible for "fixing bugs and preventing service outages," leaving the stability of the platform up in the air a bit. One unnamed source told the outlet that the public version of Twitter "was at risk of breaking during the night."
As a result, the ol' bird app was flooded with memes about its own demise and #RIPTwitter quickly began trending.
At time of publication, Twitter has not succumbed to death just yet. The memes about the whole thing, though? God tier.
Twitter, we've had a good run.

So, where we headed after this, lads? Tumblr? Pinterest? The Nintendo DS PictoChat? The latest illegal Club Penguin server?
