The company owned by Elon Musk Twitter has once again carried out a new round of layoffs. Furthermore, according to ‘The New York Times’ sources, this operation will lay off 200 workers on the staff. This figure assumes that at least 10% of current employees are affected by this announcement.
In this way, Twitter’s workforce would have been reduced to below 2,000 employees, compared to 7,500 employees last October, when the company was acquired by Elon Musk. Who already announced in his day a series of changes in the organizational chart of this company.
According to sources familiar with the situation who did not specify the number of those affected, consulted by Bloomberg, the layoffs affect workers in different functions of the company, including engineering and product areas.
Responsibilities for Twitter Blue
In this regard, the media specialized in technology ‘The Information’ pointed out that among the people affected by the latest round of cuts would be Esther Crawford, Twitter product manager and responsible for the relaunch of the subscription program, known as Twitter Blue.
Crawford had been considered one of the most loyal Twitter executives to Musk, after at the beginning of last November he published on his social network profile a photograph sleeping in the office in a sleeping bag.
In this way, the social network has not yet finished fitting the proposals for labor reforms by the magnate with the aim of optimizing the workforce. Adding a total of 5,500 layoffs. In addition, many of these former workers have already expressed their discontent with the company, which has led them to carry out a new project called Spill that will try to compete directly with Twitter by using more inclusive and egalitarian policies so that all users have the same opportunities to grow in a new, more sustainable environment for former Musk employees.
