In Silicon Valley, generous severance packages sometimes pose an opportunity for travel.

Esther Crawford, a former top executive at Twitter, said she’s going on a solo vacation just a few weeks after she was laid off from the social media company.

“This is my first time without a job since grad school so I’m heading out on some solo travel — first stop is a few days in Hong Kong!” Crawford tweeted on Sunday night.

Crawford made headlines last year after a photo of her sleeping at Twitter’s headquarters went viral as Elon Musk touted his “hardcore” work culture.

The Twitter executive worked at the company for over two years after it acquired her startup, Squad, in 2020, according to her LinkedIn page. After Musk purchased Twitter in October, she was identified as one of his top lieutenants and was put in charge of the company’s new subscription service, Twitter Blue, before she was laid off in February. 

On Tuesday, Crawford posted a photo from her travels on Instagram.

“Took the tram up to The Peak to get an amazing view of Hong Kong,” she wrote. “What a beautiful place.”

Crawford isn’t the only former Twitter executive to take off on vacation after the widespread layoffs. In February, Twitter’s former head of ad sales, Robin Wheeler, appeared to go on a few trips after she was laid off. 

“Status: Jackson Hole. Currently knee deep in powder and ordering anything that starts with Elk/Bison/Buffalo,” Wheeler tweeted on February 21.

Earlier that month, she’d said she’d returned from a “sabbatical vacay in Mexico.”
