“Without significant subscription revenue, there is a good chance Twitter will not survive the upcoming economic downturn,” Musk said. “We need roughly half of our revenue to be subscription.”

Top Executives quit the Platform.

Meanwhile, The resignation of Twitter’s top information security officer, privacy officer, and chief compliance officer earlier on Thursday raised questions about the company’s capacity to maintain the security of its platform.

Their resignation comes a day before a deadline for Twitter to submit a compliance report to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), which is overseeing privacy practices at the company as part of a 2011 settlement.
