Embattled Twitter CEO Elon Musk admitted on Thursday that bankruptcy for the social media platform "isn't out of the question" as the site reels from a series of high-profile resignations, and reports of growing discord among staff.

Musk's comment, first reported by Platformer's Zoë Schiffer, came as part of an employee all-hands meeting, during which he also reportedly encouraged employees to simply "be more hardcore" in the face of company troubles. Musk also allegedly reiterated his ban on remote work, telling attendees that "if you can physically make it to an office and you don't show up, resignation accepted."
