Last week, in an immediately classic internal memo, new Twitter owner Elon Musk warned his employees they should immediately resign unless they were prepared to be “extremely hardcore”. As he explained: “This will mean working long hours at high intensity. Only exceptional performance will constitute a passing grade.” Hundreds reportedly resigned.

Over the weekend, we got a glimpse of what this new hardcore extremity looked like, via a photo of Musk at Twitter offices. Reclining in a desk chair, Musk held court with a group of his remaining employees, appearing to explain something to nine of them while another dozen or so were milling in the background.
