since Elon Musk bought Twitter and announced himself as its new CEO, the company’s employees have been bracing for layoffs as Musk ordered massive layoffs at Twitter from the start. Now, new details have been published about this retrenchment and apparently the richest man in the world plans to 3,700 Twitter employees expel
According to Bloomberg’s report, Musk plans to inform the employees who are going to be fired by Friday in the company’s layoff program, and these people will also receive unemployment benefits for 60 days. In this report, when 3,700 employees are fired from the company, the number of employees will be reduced by half.
Elon Musk’s opposition to remote work on Twitter
Elon Musk, who has also been one of the main critics of telecommuting for the past few years, apparently plans to end Twitter’s policy of allowing employees to work from home “forever.”
Before Musk took over Twitter, there were reports that he was planning to lay off 75 percent of the company’s employees. Although Musk himself later denied this report during a visit to Twitter’s headquarters in San Francisco, it was clear that reducing the number of employees is one of his top priorities. It should also be noted that after signing the deal to buy Twitter, he immediately fired former CEO Parag Agrawal, CFO Ned Segal, and several other senior Twitter executives.
Of course, these were not all the new changes of the Twitter social network after Musk took over. In fact, since this purchase, the cost of the Twitter Blue subscription service has changed to $8 per month, and apparently the tweet editing feature is going to be available to all users soon. Musk also announced the formation of a “content moderation council”.
