Nothing is going well for the social network of the blue bird. As departures multiply within the platform, bought by Elon Musk on October 27 for 44 billion dollars, many users are now wondering if the end of Twitter is near. Hashtags #RIPTwitter and #TwitterDown have emerged since Thursday on the social network, even rising to the top of trending topics.

Internet users thus began to comment on the death of Twitter… On Twitter. “And… We just hit a new peak in Twitter usage, lol,” Elon Musk even quipped, tweeting a skull pirate flag and a meme (parody image), showing a man with a face like a bluebird, posing in front of such a masked grave of a bluebird, as if Twitter is hilariously attending its own funeral.

“Come on my Instagram, we are good”

It was enough for Internet users to start commenting on the death of the platform. Some, like Elon Musk, preferred to play the card of irony and self-mockery by posting humorous memes. “Twitter currently looks like a late night at 6:30 a.m. where everyone is between drunk and hungover and wondering where to go after #RIPTwitter #TwitterOFF”, tweeted a user in particular.

Others took the opportunity to share their Mastodon, Instagram or LinkedIn accounts. “I found a small app not stung beetles to replace Twitter in case of #RIPTwitter, you know #Facebook? or even “Oh no… Twitter is going to close, oh my 😞. Come on my Instagram, we are good, “wrote Internet users.

Fears of a shutdown or general malfunction of the social network also caused many Internet users to save their tweets. For those who wish to keep track of their activity, Twitter offers a function to download the archives of all its published tweets.
