(Presidentialwire.com)- Chief Twit and Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced another round on Twitter layoffs last week, cutting into the company’s once large 7,500 employee workforce, according to The Daily Caller. With a new direction in mind, the chief twit has reportedly laid off over half of the employees at Twitter already, generating massive backlash from those particularly on the left.
Robin Wheeler, head of ad sales, and Maggie McLean Sunwick, the company’s vice president of partnerships, were fired by Musk after they disagreed on firing more employees. Sarah Rose, the head of U.S. content partnerships also left the company after Musk was deliberating on whether or not he will lay off even more.
Musk also triggered a series of resignations after sending out an email demanding an “extremely hardcore” workplace culture, which is contrary to the easy culture that the employees have grown accustomed to.
Viral footage showed an employee documenting a day in the life at Twitter, where she poured herself wine, played foosball with her friends, made matcha, and had a delicious looking lunch made by chefs that also worked at the company.
Noticeable changes already made to the social media platform have included how users receive “blue checkmarks.” Where once the process appeared to favor notable figures in media, government, Hollywood, or just those with a large following, Musk is moving to democratize the checkmark to include anyone who pays $8 a month for it.
The chief twit has also been reinstating formerly suspended accounts, including the account of former President Trump after Twitter, along with other social media giants, banned him on their platforms for allegedly inciting an insurrection on January 6.
Responding to his critics, Musk tweeted, “Hope all judgy hall monitors stay on other platforms – please, I’m begging u.”
After the acquisition of Twitter, the White House has said they are conducting a national security review of Musk. The administration is seeking to investigate the billionaire through the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), according to American Pigeon.
