Elon Musk is considering further layoffs
Is Twitter preparing to lay off even more employees? According to a report from Bloomberg, Elon Musk would therefore consider new layoffs, which this time would target the sales and partnership teams. The scale of this potential layoff wave is still unclear, but it would come after large numbers of employees rejected Elon Musk’s Twitter 2.0 ultimatum.
This weekend, Elon Musk reportedly asked Robin Wheeler, head of advertising sales at Twitter, and Maggie Suniewick, the company’s head of partnerships, to lay off more employees. Both were fired for refusing.

No longer having a communications team, Twitter did not respond to requests from Engadget, in particular, on the subject. If Twitter continues with these layoffs, they would come after those concerning around 50% of the workforce, initiated at the beginning of November. Now that most of the staff has left and that “at least 1,200” employees are on the way out following Elon Musk’s ultimatum, there is cause for concern for the smooth running of the platform’s operations.
There are already unmistakable signs. This weekend, some users noticed that the copyright protection system was no longer working. In a thread discovered by The Vergesomeone posted the whole movie The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift in some 50 tweets. This thread remained on the platform for approximately 24 hours before the account in question was suspended by Twitter.
