Twitter reportedly locked down changes to the platform on Monday to prevent employees who might be mad that Elon Musk bought the company from being able to sabotage the platform.

The move comes after the company’s board of directors unanimously approved a $44 billion definitive agreement to be acquired by Musk for $54.20 per share.

Anonymous sources reportedly told Bloomberg News that the new measure would make unauthorized changes more difficult.

“For now, Twitter won’t allow product updates unless they’re business-critical, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the situation is private,” Bloomberg News reported. “Product changes will require approval from a vice president, the people said. Twitter imposed the temporary ban to keep employees who may be miffed about the deal from ‘going rogue.'”

The news comes as some Twitter employees are reportedly furious that Musk bought the company.
