Musk's letter about "hardcore" work culture prompted many employees to resign. Its reports are to be trusted, close to 1200 employees made a voluntary exit. As Bloomberg reported, the sales employees accepted his "hardcore" work culture in greater numbers than workers in the technical team.

A couple of days ago, Twitter's sales head Robin Wheeler was fired from the company. Interestingly, Robin had resigned previously from the company but Musk convinced her to stay back. Popular tech journalist Casey Newton reported that Wheeler had been fired from the company. "Multiple ex-Twitter sources tell me that Robin Wheeler, the sales leader who Musk begged to stay at the company days ago when she tried to resign, has now been fired."

Wheeler also confirmed parting ways with the company on Twitter. She wrote, "To the team and my clients...you were always my first and only priority." She also added a salute emoji alongside her tweet. The Verge reached out to her for comment but she did not reveal that she was fired.

On a related note, Musk during a meeting said that Twitter is now done with firing people. He is in fact looking to hire more people in the sales and engineering team. "In terms of critical hires, I would say people who are great at writing software are the highest priority," he said during the meeting.
