Elon Musk Plans To Cut 75% Of Twitter’s Workforce

Twitter’s workforce is likely to be hit with massive cuts in the coming months, no matter who owns the company, a change likely to have a major impact on its ability to control harmful content and prevent data security crises, The Washington Post reports.

Elon Musk told prospective investors in his deal to buy the company that he planned to get rid of nearly 75 percent of Twitter’s 7,500 workers, whittling the company down to a skeleton staff of just over 2,000.

Even if Musk’s Twitter deal falls through — and there’s little indication now that it will — big cuts are expected: Twitter’s current management planned to pare the company’s payroll by about $800 million by the end of next year, a number that would mean the departure of nearly a quarter of the workforce, according to corporate documents and interviews with people familiar with the company’s deliberations.

The company also planned to make major cuts to its infrastructure, including data centers that keep the site functioning for more than 200 million users that log on each day.
