Elon Musk’s Twitter continues to lay off employees.
According to Bloomberg, Elon Musk is considering laying off more people just weeks after laying off half of the company’s personnel.
According to Bloomberg, the next job layoffs are expected to target personnel in Twitter’s sales and partnership departments.
Musk requested that the team leaders in certain divisions agree to lay off more people. But, according to the report, Robin Wheeler, who oversaw marketing and sales, declined to do so. Maggie Suniewick, who managed partnerships, felt the same way. As a result, both lost their jobs, according to sources.
Musk’s tenure at Twitter has been marked by turmoil, rushed ideas, and layoffs. While layoffs are never desirable, they have been challenging for Twitter staff. The company cut off around half of its full-time employees and then allegedly begged some of them to return since things weren’t going well without them. The whole thing was carried out via impersonal, automated emails.
To add fuel to the fire, approximately 1,200 staff resigned in response to Musk’s “hardcore work” ultimatum, causing Twitter to close its doors until November 21.
Furthermore, Musk’s unsuccessful attempts to update user authentication with a contentious subscription service resulted in a torrent of bogus accounts and pranks, prompting significant advertisers to abandon the platform.
As a result, many more people who did valuable work at Twitter have left. Musk has reportedly stated that the company is in financial distress and that it must make up ground with a skeleton workforce. Unfortunately, the chaos does not appear to be dying down anytime soon.
