It was the night before Thanksgiving and dozens of Twitter staff were fired

by | Nov 24, 2022

Several dozen Twitter employees were fired overnight on Wednesday, most of whom were engineers, two people familiar with the actions told Business Insider.

Business Insider adds that the firings came as a surprise inside Twitter, the people said. Elon Musk said in an all-hands meeting earlier this week “that there would be no more layoffs at the company.

“The employees fired overnight on Wednesday were informed they were being laid off for performance reasons, and were given one month of severance, one of the people said.

“The termination process was similar to that experienced by previously laid-off employees, the two people said: Access to work tools and computers were cut off, and a notice of termination was sent to affected employees’ personal email accounts.

“Thousands of Twitter employees have already been laid offresigned, or fired by Musk, leaving critical workers stretched thin. Twitter teams are already so short-handed that many employees have had to work on Thanksgiving, the people said.
