The head of Twitter’s French operations has left the company, marking the latest high-profile departure since its acquisition by Elon Musk.

Damien Viel, who became Twitter’s managing director in France in 2015, leads the massive layoff of about 50 percent of the firm’s 7,500 employees globally.

Those who left, either forcibly or voluntarily, included Joel Roth, head of trust and security, and Lee Kisner, chief security officer.

The term #RIPTwitter started trending on the social network last Friday because of the departure limit.

“It’s Over,” Mr. Viel Tweeted, “Proud, honored and mission accomplished. Goodbye #TwitterFrance. What a thrill! What a team! What an encounter! Thank you everyone for these incredible and intense seven years.”

In a message posted on the social media platform earlier this month, Mr. Weil expressed support for employees facing layoffs in the wake of Mr. Musk’s acquisition.

“All my thoughts, respect, energy and love are for everyone around the world today,” he added wrote,

“Together we’ve built the most incredible app on the planet. So proud of everything we’ve done and how we’ve done it.” [we] Have done

A Twitter spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment.

Last week, Mr Musk told Twitter employees forced to accept “extremely harsh” working conditions at the firm or else leave.

Hundreds of employees reportedly refused to agree to the ultimatum, which led to the walkout of all Twitter employees from offices around the world the next day.

An internal memo said, “Effective immediately, we are temporarily closing our office buildings and all badge access will be suspended.”

“Please continue to follow company policy by refraining from discussing confidential company information on social media, in the press or elsewhere.”
