They can’t really form a union to pressure the company, because STEM guys just don’t swing that way, the whole union thing is far too hard-hat-and-lunch-pail for their level of sophistication, and I can’t imagine why they (or anyone) would object to better and more robust anti-bot-otics, so… I can’t think of anything else… they didn’t want their filters to be public.

It's too soon to speculate.  The deal was only agreed a few hours ago.
I doubt that employees have left yet. Software changes have been
frozen temporarily.
Musk plans to take the company private, at which time the Twitter
board will resign.
Many employees have share compensation schemes. They will want to find
out what is going to happen to them. I expect many discussions and
'What ifs' are going on, with the future so cloudy.
But most employees will be in a wait and see mode.
