lon Musk has cut even more jobs at Twitter – and this time he has focused on culling employees that worked in the tech company’s sales department.
Musk, who purchased the company for $44billion and assumed leadership last month, has now laid off around 50 percent of the original 7,500 employees and accepted resignations from 1,200 more.
The new layoffs came late on Sunday, with some notified that evening via an email titled, ‘Your Role at Twitter,’ which went on to say: ‘Today is your last day working at the company.’
It was not immediately clear how many salespeople were laid off by the Chief Twit.
When Musk gave Twitter employees an ultimatum last week in which they could either stay and subscribe to his ‘hardcore’ vision for the company or leave, many more in technical roles opted to leave than expected, Bloomberg reported.
Conversely, a larger proportion of employees in sales and partnerships positions remained. Therefore on Friday Musk asked leaders in those parts of the company to agree to fire more employees.
