In an interview on Tuesday for the BBC, Twitter CEO Elon Musk said that to date he has fired some 6,000 employees. The reduction is equal to 80% of the payroll of the social network.
When Musk acquired Twitter there were at least 8,000 workers,hour the platform has only 1,500 employees. “It’s not fun at all and sometimes it can be painful,” said the tycoon.
Since the arrival of Elon Musk on Twitter, “drastic actions” have been carried out, after it was known that the social network had a cash flow with a negative balance of $3,000 million dollars. “This is not a situation of care or indifference. It’s like, if the whole ship sinks, then nobody has a job,” said the CEO.
so within his action plan included the dismissal of thousands of workers, including senior executives, as well as the promulgation of new policies for the use of the platform in which the verification of user accounts stands out. “Twitter is more or less breaking even now and advertisers are coming back to the platform,” Musk said.
However, Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter has cost him a lot of money. In October of last year the offer was for $44 billion dollars, currently the social network is valued at $20 billion dollars.
Finally, in the interview, the billionaire joked about the social network saying that “he was no longer the CEO of Twitter”, since he had been replaced by his pet, a Shiba Inu named Floki, all this makes sense after a week Back it was possible to see on the platform, the change of the blue bird for the Dogecoin meme logo.
