How many employees does Twitter have?

Twitter has over 7,500 employees, as reported by CNN. At the moment, it is unclear how many people were laid off from the company.

The outlet notes that it is estimated that about  25% to 50% of employees will be losing their jobs. In the email that was sent out, Twitter told its employees that people who lost their jobs would receive a notification on their personal email about the next steps.

Whereas, people whose jobs were secured would receive a notification on their Twitter emails. Amid this, it was reported that employees’ access to the company’s channels was paused for the time being.

Twitter’s board of directors is also dissolved

The news about mass layoffs comes after it was reported that Elon Musk has dissolved the Twitter board of directors.

As per CNN, the filing stated that all previous members of the board along with CEO Parag Agrawal and chairman Bret Taylor were no longer directors.

Changes Elon Musk is bringing in

One of the biggest changes that Musk is planning to bring in is implementing a monthly fee of $8 if people want to keep their blue tick on the platform.

He further added that people who do sign up to pay would be offered a number of benefits that would otherwise not be available to the general public.

To begin with, people who have verified accounts will enjoy priority in replies, mentions, and searches to make sure there is no spam.

Users will also have the ability to post long audio and video messages while enjoying half as many ads on the platform.
