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.

Shout out to everyone staying in the club 'til the lights come on.

Twitter collapsing? Before Spotify Wrapped day?!

No idea what's going on at Twitter HQ right now, but it's probably this?

This tweet will only make sense if you were on Twitter when the Fyre Festival documentary dropped.

Pour one out to all the bookmarks and fancams we've loved and will now lose.

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

When the mass Tumblr sign-up comes, veterans better get priority boarding.

There's only one way to save Twitter: WE HAVE TO WIN REGIONALS!

At least we got some good memes out of it.

Nothing like meme-ing the potential flop of your own $44 billion impulse purchase, huh?
