Bloomberg: Elon Musk plans to fire half of Twitter employees

Elon Musk, who is the new owner of Twitter, plans to lay off about half of all employees of the company. This was reported by Bloomberg, citing its sources.

According to them, about 3.7 thousand of the 7.5 thousand employees of Twitter will fall under the reduction. The company will also prohibit those employees who remain in the state from working remotely. Such measures, according to sources of the agency, are aimed at reducing costs. The agency notes that Twitter has not yet responded to a request for comment.

On October 27, Musk closed the deal to buy Twitter, which owns the social network of the same name. The new owner is expected to end the practice of permanently blocking users. The entrepreneur announced that he is creating a special council that will study the issue of Twitter moderation. He noted that “social media content moderation board will include representatives of various views,” and added that this includes human rights organizations and minorities who face “violence fueled by hatred.”
