More than a dozen employees of Basecamp said they’re resigning as a result of a controversial new policy banning discussion of political issues at work.

The employees made their departure announcements in Twitter posts on Friday, four days after Basecamp’s chief executive officer said conversations about social and political topics were a “major distraction.”
