In an early morning tweet, Musk said the $44 billion takeover was "temporarily on hold," pending questions over the social media company's estimates of the number of fake accounts or "bots." That sent Twitter's stock plunging 25 percent. (Photo by Chris DELMAS / AFP) (Photo by CHRIS DELMAS/AFP via Getty Images)

Elon Musk tells Twitter’s remaining staff to commit to working “hardcore” or leave the company.

On Wednesday, in a reported email to staff, Musk urged employees to sign a pledge committing to a revamped work environment by a Thursday deadline.

Musk also outlined plans to build a “Twitter 2.0” by saying that employees would need to commit to working “extremely hardcore” at high intensity for long hours.

Employees who do not sign the pledge by Thursday’s deadline will be fired and be given three months of severance pay.
