FLIP THE BIRD! Musk to Fire 3,700 Twitter Employees, Half of Total Work Force

A new report from Bloomberg claims billionaire Elon Musk plans to fire at least 3,700 Twitter employees, roughly half the platform’s total workforce.

From Bloomberg:

Elon Musk plans to eliminate about 3,700 jobs at Twitter Inc., or half of the social media company’s workforce, in a bid to drive down costs following his $44 billion acquisition, according to people with knowledge of the matter.

Twitter’s new owner aims to inform affected staffers Friday, said the people, who requested anonymity discussing non-public plans. Musk also intends to reverse the company’s existing work-from-anywhere policy, asking remaining employees to report to offices — though some exceptions could be made, the people said.
