Twitter Fires Over 50% Indian Employees From All Major Departments
Twitter is dependent on the Indian market but the new company owner is firing Indian employees. He fired the majority of employees in India.
Elon Musk, Twitter’s new owner who is battling to make his USD 44 billion acquisition work, has sacked the majority of Twitter’s more that 200 employees in India as ahead of mass layoffs across the world.
According to sources, the engineering, marketing, sales and communications teams all saw layoffs. The severance payout that would be given to those fired off in India is still unclear, though.
According to the sources, India’s whole marketing and communications staff has been fired.
The CEO of Twitter, Parag Agrawal, as well as the CFO and a few other top employees were fired by the world’s richest businessman, Elon Musk, last week to start his tenure there.
The top management left soon after that. Musk has now begun a significant effort to reduce the company’s overall personnel.
“Layoffs have begun. An employee of Twitter India who spoke to PTI on the condition of anonymity said that some of her colleagues had received an email notification about this.
Another source claimed that a “substantial chunk” of the India team had been laid off. The complete information regarding the employment losses was not immediately accessible. Email inquiries were not answered by Twitter India.
The US-based social media network had earlier informed its staff through internal email that it will be cutting its worldwide workforce on Friday in an effort to “put Twitter on a healthy path.” “Everyone will receive a personalized email,” it stated.
For the sake of the security of its staff, Twitter’s systems, and customer data, the firm will immediately close all of its locations.
Please go home if you are in or heading to an office, Twitter has said.
The corporation in the email forbade employees from disclosing sensitive company data through social media, with the press, or in any other way, despite the fact that Twitter has multiple run-ins with the law over the right to free speech.
Out of its 7,500 global employees, 3,738 are apparently being let go by the corporation.
