Elon Musk trolls critics with new “stay-at-work” merch, after discovering “Wake Up”

Elon Musk took to Twitter on Wednesday to troll critics and former employees of his company in a new revelation of Twitter merchandise.

A day after Musk was spotted revealing a closet full of “stay awake” T-shirts at Twitter headquarters — a catchphrase often used by those on the ideological left — Twitter’s new boss has reimagined the design and revealed a new “stay awake” T-shirt.

“Awesome new Twitter product!” He captioned the photo.

The new design, which could just be a meme, is a nod to Musk’s change or Twitter’s work policy. After he took over the platform, Musk ended remote work for employees, which has been widely provided for in the coronavirus pandemic.

In a November 9 group email, Musk said there was “no way to color the message” and that employees should expect office policy changes.

The email allegedly said Musk would stop working remotely and would require employees to be in the office at least 40 hours a week. Bloomberg reported that any exceptions would need his personal approval.

Platforms Management Editor Zoe Schafer mentioned in a tweet that he echoed these requirements in a comprehensive meeting with Twitter employees.

“If you can get to an office physically and don’t show up, the resignation has been accepted,” he said on November 10.

The changes were implemented within two weeks of Musk completing his $44 billion acquisition of the company.

On Tuesday, Musk posted a video of him and another person finding a “secret locker” full of T-shirts that read: #StayWoke.

“We are here at [merchandise] “I woke up an entire closet full of hashtags,” Musk said. An anonymous off-camera person added: “Secret locker.”

In the aftermath of the purchase, critics expressed concerns that Musk’s push to enable “free speech” on the platform would allow discrimination, insults, and fake news to flourish.

Since then, Musk has confirmed that “hate speech impressions” have dropped by a third, an award he attributed to the rest of Twitter’s staff.
