NOS News

Twitter again laid off at least 200 employees this weekend. This is reported by the American newspaper The New York Times. That’s about 10 percent of the people who still worked for the social media company. Twitter itself has not yet responded to the news.

After the takeover of Twitter by Elon Musk in October last year, there have been several rounds of layoffs. To cut costs, Musk, who is also the CEO of car manufacturer Tesla and aerospace company SpaceX, has reduced the workforce from 7,500 to less than 2,000.

According to insiders who spoke to The New York Times, the layoffs included product managers, data scientists and engineers who worked on the site’s reliability. The team that maintains the services that earn Twitter money was also reduced from thirty to eight people.

Large rounds of layoffs in the tech sector

Recently, there have been more large rounds of layoffs at large tech companies. This means that 12,000 jobs will disappear at Google. Microsoft announced last month that it would cut 10,000 jobs and online store Amazon will cut 18,000 jobs. The parent company of Facebook and Instagram announced a major round of layoffs in November last year: 11,000 employees will lose their jobs at Meta.
