According to The New York Times, Twitter laid off at least another 200 employees on Saturday evening, citing people familiar with the situation.
According to the publication, the 200 fired employees accounted for roughly 10% of Twitter’s current workforce of approximately 2,000 people.
According to the New York Times, since Elon Musk bought the firm in October 2022, he has slowly fired off its staff, starting with approximately 7,500, in an effort to cut expenses.
According to former Twitter employees, the firings occurred after Twitter made it more difficult for its employees to connect with one another by shutting down Slack, the company’s internal messaging programme.
According to the New York Times, the company’s mass layoffs peaked in November, with Musk dismissing about half of the workforce. With the reduction of Twitter’s workforce to around 2,000 employees, smaller layoffs and resignations occurred.
