Twitter Asks Dozens of Fired Staff to Come Back, Citing ‘Mistake’: Report
After Twitter Inc laid off about half its staff on Friday following Elon Musk’s $44 billion acquisition, the company is now reaching out to dozens of employees who lost their jobs and asking them to return, Bloomberg News reported Sunday.
Some of those asked to return were fired in error. Others were let go before management realized their work and experience might be needed to build new features that Elon Musk envisions, the report said, citing people familiar with the moves.
Twitter recently laid off 50% of its employees, including employees on the trust and security team, the company’s head of security and integrity, Yoel Roth, said in a tweet earlier this week.
Tweets from the company’s social media staff said teams responsible for communications, content curation, human rights and machine learning ethics were among those destroyed, as well as some product and engineering teams.
Twitter updated its app in Apple’s App Store on Saturday to start charging $8 for requested blue ticks, in the first major overhaul of Elon Musk’s social media platform.
Twitter did not immediately respond to Reuters’ request for comment.
