The following e-mail was apparently sent out to all Twitter employees today. There are rumours that as many as 50% of the company will be laid off.
I’ve been part of several layoffs and waiting to see if you have a job is obviously terrible. The longer you have to wait, the more it becomes like torture. Though I’ve been reading that many employees already know they don’t have a job since they’ve lost all access to their accounts. It seems like it’s not a great time to be associated with Twitter in any way.
