witter’s new owner Elon Musk is further wiping out the teams that battle misinformation on the social media platform as outsourced moderators learned over the weekend they were out of a job.

The social media giant fired its contractors that track hate and other harmful content on Saturday. Some of the contractors said they didn’t realize they were sacked until they weren’t able to log onto work on Saturday.

Musk’s move comes after Twitter fired much of its full-time workforce by email on November 4. About 4,400 of 5,500 contractors have been fired, according Reporter Casey Newton from Platformer News. 

Melissa Ingle, who worked at Twitter as a contractor for more than a year, was one of a number of contractors who said they were terminated without notification on Saturday. She said she’s concerned that there’s going to be an increase in abuse on Twitter with the number of workers leaving.

‘I love the platform and I really enjoyed working at the company and trying to make it better. And I’m just really fearful of what’s going to slip through the cracks,’ she said. 

Newton said that those employees impacted are involved in Twitter’s marketing, content moderation and real estate sectors. 

‘Contractors aren’t being notified at all, they’re just losing access to Slack and email,’ Newton wrote on Twitter. ‘Managers figured it out when their workers just disappeared from the system. They heard nothing from their leaders.’
