Musk laid off half of its employees following his $44 billion acquisition of the company and sacking of its CEO, CFO, and legal policy head. He also replaced the board making himself the only person in charge. Unfortunately, he has already managed to have a disagreement with himself and noticed that there are not enough staff in the building to run the company and continuously tell him how wonderful he is.
According to a report by Bloomberg, Musk fired people by mistake and others were let go before management realised that their work and experience may be essential to build the new features Musk envisions.
Twitter has around 3,700 employees remaining. Musk is apparently forcing these people to knock out code really fast which has meant some employees sleeping in the office to meet deadlines. One of these features is the revamped Twitter Blue subscription, which will allow users to wear a blue tick on their profile for $8, among other benefits.
Twitter is also being sued by those who were laid off are hitting back by suing the company due to a lack of notice being given.
All this has turned Twitter into a disaster area. Even Mush has been forced to admit that there has been a massive drop in revenue since he took over the platform. Companies such as General Motors, Audi, General Mills, and IPG have already paused their advertising on the platform and a bit chunk of users have gone.
