Twitter Fires 4400 Contract Employees, Many Without Notice

Twitter suddenly terminated 4400 of 5500 contract workers, and most weren’t notified. Most found out when they couldn’t get onto their accounts. Their bosses didn’t know either. People are stunned.

The terminations will affect moderation and infrastructure.

Elon Musk is keeping the kitchen sink.

According to The Verge, Twitter eliminated a large number of contract employees on Saturday, affecting anywhere from 4,400 to 5,500 workers, according to Platformer’s Casey Newton. As noted by Platformer and confirmed by other reports from Axios and CNBC, most contract employees didn’t receive any notice that they’ve been terminated and only found out after losing access to the company’s email and internal communications systems.

Twitter managers didn’t know until they saw the employees’ accounts were deactivated, The Verge wrote.

The firm reports that it’s part of the reprioritization and reorganization.

Elon Musk has already fired half the staff. He also told the work-from-home employees to come to work, and if they didn’t show up, they were terminated. Some of them might also be gone.

The firings will impact content moderation and core infrastructure.

Elon didn’t directly address this on Twitter. He did comment on the free lunches. Did the contract employees take advantage? We have to think Mr. Musk has a plan.

Jack Dorsey, a Twitter co-founder, said the previous firings were his fault for expanding too quickly. He also told Musk recently that he is the person he’d most want to take over Twitter.

Dorsey said that Twitter should not rely on corporate advertisers, which was his original mistake.

We don’t know what he’d say now. he hasn’t commented.

It must really be depressing in those employees who thought that they owned the jobs and loved to shadow ban ,delete alter or outright ban anyone they disagreed with. How it’s too bad that your gym rights at work and the free wine is now gone and you will actually have to go to work for at least 40 hours.
Those that lost or were laid off can always do what President Joe Biden suggested the employees That he directly laid off on his first day in office
. Yes you to can learn to code.

Contractors are often released without notice. It is the responsibility of the contractor to inform them. US corporations use contractors often for this purpose, to reduce costs and offload responsibility.

Oh no! These contractors were fired without notice!? What days are these? LOL! Seriously though, it wouldn’t feel nice if that happened to me. But being fired isn’t the end of the world. And these people were all part of the evil censorship juggernaut. I really don’t have any sympathy to spare.

Twitter was all about control of speech and by extension control of People. You don’t need a lot of people to run a Free Speech Platform!
