Twitter Layoffs to Start Friday Morning

The beginning of the end of Twitter will happen this Friday morning (November 4th). All employees were kicked out of the office and sent home Thursday evening. The most recent count was expected to be around 3700 employees, around 50% of the work force.

On Thursday evening, all employees received an email stating that they will be informed of their employment status at 9 A.M. PT on Friday. Each email will be sent with the subject line “Your Role at Twitter.” If an employee is keeping their job, they’ll be notified via their work email — if they’re let go, they’ll be notified on a personal address.

“To help ensure the safety of each employee as well as Twitter systems and customer data, our offices will be temporarily closed and all badge access will be suspended,” the email reads. “If you are in an office or on your way to an office, please return home.”
