Following the billionaire Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter, the social media behemoth’s staff members were uncertain about their future at the company. However, the company revealed that layoffs were scheduled to begin on November 4 and that about half of Twitter’s 7,500 employees were expected to lose their jobs.
Some employees have already begun receiving emails informing them of their termination, and they have been posting about it on the microblogging website. Despite the fact that many people are upset and angry about the decision, one fired employee used the platform to share the news in a positive way.
