Twitter office 'before and after Elon Musk' shock internet [SEE PICS]

Things at Twitter look bleaker then ever after almost half of the employees were suddenly fired, while many employees triggered by Elon Musk's "extreme" ultimatum chose to resign even before the deadline day.

While Twitter's mass exodus has been making headlines, a tweet by a YouTuber points towards another problem-gender inequality. On November 20, Lauren Chen took to the microblogging website to share a picture of ''Twitter before Elon vs Twitter after Elon". The internet was quick to notice the unusually low number of women among the employees left at Twitter.

See the picture below:


The first image displayed a fine mix of workforce of both genders at the office - this was before Elon Musk took charge. The other photo highlighted a clear absence of women staffs from Twitter, after Mr Musk's acquisition. A group of men, with only two women, can be seen in the picture, along with Mr Musk flashing a thumbs-up sign.

Intriguingly, the new Twitter boss Elon Musk also posted the same images from inside Twitter office on Saturday. The photos were from the publicised 'code review' meeting on the 10th floor of Twitter headquarters where the "Chier Twit" had called all the coders of the company.

The tweet has now gone viral, and many on social media took note of 'the case of missing women' at the Twitter office. Many questioned why the images depicted a lack of gender equality among the Twitter workforce.

A user sarcastically wrote, "Women had enough sense to leave the company with severance.'' Another commented, '' All of the women are gone in the second photo.'' Another user wrote, '' Omg he removed all the women! '' A fourth user commented, '' The blatant misogyny in these replies are why women in tech still have such a hard road to walk in 2022 Women can absolutely code and excel in any tech field, they're just dissuaded at every turn by territorial, insecure, mediocre men.''
