Making all the fears and doubts of employees working with the microblogging site Twitter losing jobs if the World's richest person Elon Musk takes over the platform, the employees are being laid off due to various reasons. The exercise of laying off employees started with top executives like the CEO losing their jobs.
Later the contract employees are on the radar as the exercise is underway to remove the employees to reduce the workload. Close to 5,000 contract employees are said to be in danger of losing jobs and they will be laid off from their respective jobs.
Giving a big shock to the employees Elon Musk reportedly fired not less than 20 employees who reportedly spoke against him internally. Knowing that the employees spoke against him he sacked them. A popular tech writer said the same on his Twitter account.
Elon Musk is not someone who likes facing criticism or seeing someone talking against him. When the talks to take Twitter into his control were going on Elon Musk had issues with former Chief Executive Officer Parag Agrawal over the bots on the platform. This reached a point where he temporarily put the deal on hold.
After taking the Twitter platform into his control the first thing Elon Musk did was fire Paragr Agarwal and Twitter's top lawyer, Ms Vijaya Gadde who used to take care of the censorship of Twitter accounts. She was the main reason behind then-United States President Donald Trump getting banned from Twitter.
By sacking Parag Agarwal and Vijaya Gadde Elon Musk sent a strong signal to the Twitter employees about how their stay with the platform is going to be. Now the employees who are believed to have criticised him were sacked from their jobs.
When a few Twitter users posted about the employees getting sacked from their jobs Elon Musk replied that the talent of the employees might be used somewhere. "I would like to apologise for firing these geniuses. Their immense talent will no doubt be of great use elsewhere," he replied. A few say that Elon Musk mockingly said this after firing the employees.
