San Francisco. Twitter has shut down its internal communication system Slack and employees have posted on the anonymous workplace chat app Blind that the company has stopped paying their Slack bills. The move took employees by surprise and nobody turned up for the entire day on Friday, reports Platformr. Employees lost access to Jira, the tracking software that allows engineers to ship code and monitor progress on new features.
While some employees communicated over email, some decided to take just one day off and others took two days off.
Jira access was later restored, but the slack was not down for routine maintenance.
An employee was quoted as saying, there is no such thing as routine maintenance.
A spokesperson for Slack confirmed that the company has not deactivated Twitter workspaces or user accounts. Slack rarely shuts down services for maintenance.
We didn’t pay our bill, wrote a Twitter employee. Now everyone is working hard.
Twitter did not immediately comment on the report.
Meanwhile, the platform remained down for a few minutes for many users on Friday and around 55 per cent users complained of problems accessing the platform from mobile.
