Elon Musk’s divisive $44 billion dollar Twitter takeover has sparked threats of exodus by a pearl-clutching segment of Twitter users who claim that the social media platform will become a cesspool of hate with the Tesla boss at the helm.

The hashtags “#RIPTwitter” and “DeleteTwitter” were trending Monday — but so far there’s no proof self-proclaimed progressives are following through.

“Since Elon Musk is buying Twitter, we need a new social media site to go to that won’t sell out to right-wing nut jobs. Any suggestions?” proclaimed one alleged Twitter quitter — who was still actively posting for their 41,000 followers Monday morning.

The online backlash comes after Twitter’s board of directors announced that it accepted Musk’s massive offer to buy and privatize the company.

Musk, who will pay $54.20 per share for the firm, has long stated that he wanted to acquire Twitter in order to restore the platform’s status as a haven for free speech.

However, many social media watchdogs barked at the seemingly benign acquisition as a hostile takeover that would drag online discourse back to the dark ages.

WWE legend Mick Foley also pledged to jump ship, writing: “I’ll be giving some serious thought to leaving @Twitter for good in the near future. I do not have a good feeling about where this platform is heading.”
