Twitter employees are fighting misinformation amid recent layoffs


The cuts at Elon Musk-owned Twitter are far from over, with employees responsible for global content moderation as well as hate speech and harassment departments among the latest layoffs. Bloomberg reported.

At least a dozen cuts were made on Friday evening, affecting staff at the social media company’s offices in Dublin and Singapore. Those fired include workers who oversaw Twitter’s flawed data policy, global appeals and state media.

“For example, it made more sense to bring teams together under one leader[instead of two],” Ella Irwin, Twitter’s head of trust and security, told Bloomberg.

Twitter has taken drastic cost-cutting and turnaround efforts since Musk bought the platform for $44 billion in October, including laying off half of its 7,500 employees in early November and cutting perks like free lunches at Twitter headquarters. stopped.

Musk said that “crazy cost-cutting” helped save the company from a $3 billion hole in its budget.
