Twitter may shut down, but Windows Central readers are split on if Microsoft should buy it

What you need to know

  • Twitter has been in turmoil since Elon Musk purchased the social media platform a few weeks ago.
  • Recent reports suggest that Twitter could shut down permanently following a mass departure of employees.
  • Windows Central readers were split almost 50/50 on if Microsoft should purchase Twitter.

Since Elon Musk purchased Twitter, the social media platform has spiraled into disarray. The $44 billion deal was followed by dramatic moves by Musk to reduce costs. Twitter has lost or fired several employees since Musk took over, including a reported recent mass exodus.
