‘A new low’: ‘Woke’ Twitter employee cries that he ‘got fired while sleeping’

Some now-fired Twitter employees are unintentionally making headlines left and right over their post-termination behavior, including their crying and whining.

Now on one hand, it’s very understandable that these former employees are upset. Being fired is a horrible experience. But on the other hand, say critics, these employees were responsible for God knows how many Americans being silenced and censored.

And so because of the culture of censorship that so many Twitter employees had fostered, there’s little sympathy coming from these now-fired workers’ critics, especially since Musk is jumping through hoops to try to help them through the transition:

Nevertheless, let the crying and whining commence, starting with former Twitter software engineer Jaseem Abid.

“Woke up to no slack/gmail/office access and laptop remotely wiped out. Got fired without even a confirmation email while sleeping? There is always a new low. #twitter,” Abid tweeted Friday morning.

It’s not clear whether his story is legitimate. The problem is it contradicts with what Musk said would happen, which is every employee would receive an email Friday morning letting them know whether they still had a job or not.

“An email went out to the company’s employees late Thursday notifying employees of plans to cut jobs, informing them that by 9 a.m. Pacific time Friday, workers would receive an email with the subject line: ‘Your Role at Twitter.’ Those keeping their jobs would be notified on their company email. Those losing them would be told via their personal email,” The Washington Post reported Thursday.

Regardless, below is Abid’s tweet and a few reaction tweets from critics:

Next up is former Twitter human resources associate Lindsey Kander, whose case is particularly unusual.

On Oct. 30th, she tweeted, “I hate it here.”

Critics have assumed she was referencing working at Twitter.


Yet come Friday, she was spouting an entirely different tale.

In a since-deleted tweet, she posted a selfie of herself crying and included the following caption: “It’s insane because I knew it was coming but I’m absolutely ripped in half. Im embarrassed for posting, but it hurts because this company was so damn special. #lovewhereyouworked.”


Her tweet received an even colder reception than Abid’s tweet, likely because of what she’d tweeted on the 30th of last month.

Indeed, critics were quick to note that she now no longer has to deal with showing up to work every morning at a place she “hates.”


Other critics meanwhile said she deserved to be fired because she’d allegedly been part of the censorship regime at Twitter:
