Following Elon Musk’s $44 billion acquisition of Twitter Inc, the company is reportedly reaching out to hundreds of employees who lost their jobs and urging them to return, Bloomberg reported.
Some of those being invited to return were mistakenly laid off. Others were let go before management recognised their experience and expertise could be required to construct the additional features Elon Musk wants, according to the report, which cited people familiar with the changes.
Twitter recently cut off 50% of its staff, including members of the trust and safety team, tweeted Yoel Roth, the company’s head of safety and integrity, earlier this week.
According to tweets from the social media company’s employees, teams responsible for communications, content curation, human rights, and machine learning ethics and several products and technical teams were among those laid off.
Twitter’s app in Apple’s App Store was upgraded on Saturday to begin charging $8 for sought-after blue check verification marks in Elon Musk’s first big revamp of the microblogging site.
