Elon Musk reportedly wants to lay off 75% of Twitter’s staff

Musk has previously gestured at plans for layoffs if he were to buy Twitter, but those cuts could go even deeper than previously imagined.

  • According to a new report from the Washington Post, Musk plans to purge 75% of Twitter’s workforce, or around 5,600 employees.

  • If Musk's vision for a more lean platform comes to fruition, Twitter will be forced to work with its current employees.

  • Amid macroeconomic factors and ongoing criticism that Twitter has failed to deliver on its promise, Twitter was always about to cut its workforce.

  • Musk clearly lacks a fundamental understanding of some serious issues the company faces, some of which could only be resolved by more investment in key areas.

  • Musk also barely has a grasp of the content moderation issues the company grapples with, another area that benefits from having more humans involved — not just a thrifty algorithm at the wheel.

  • The deal, which is now to back on track after months of Musk sowing chaos, is expected to close by October 28.
