Sources say Twitter is trying to retrain the workers Musk fired a few days ago



Twitter Inc., after laying off about half of the company on Friday following Elon Musk’s $44 billion acquisition, is now reaching out to dozens of employees who lost their jobs and asking them to return.

Some of those asked to return were fired by mistake, according to two people familiar with the moves. Others were let go before management realized their work and experience might be needed to build the new features Musk envisioned, the people said, asking not to be named. when discussing personal information.

Twitter cut nearly 3,700 people this week via email as a way to cut costs after Musk’s acquisition, which closed in late October. Many employees learned they lost their jobs after their access to Company-wide systems, like email and Slack, were suddenly suspended. Asking employees to come back demonstrates how rushed and chaotic the process is.

A Twitter spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment. Twitter’s re-hire plan was previously reported by Miner.

“Regarding Twitter’s workforce reduction, unfortunately there is no other option when the company is losing more than 4 million dollars / day,” Musk tweeted on Friday.

Twitter has nearly 3,700 employees left, according to people familiar with the matter. Musk is pushing those who stay at the company to move quickly in shipping new features, and in some cases, employees have even slept at the office to meet new deadlines.

Over the weekend, Twitter rolled out a new Twitter Blue subscription that offers a verification check mark to any user who pays $8 a month. The company also says it will roll out other features soon, including half ads, the ability to post longer videos, and priority ranking in replies, mentions, and search.

The The New York Times Twitter reported on Sunday that it would delay changes to the checkmark until after Tuesday’s midterm elections, after users and employees raised concerns that the scheme could be abused. to sow discord.
