Billionaire Elon Musk, who is now the official owner of social media platform Twitter, sent out an internal memo to company employees notifying them that layoffs would begin right about….now. As in today. Friday.
In an effort to place Twitter on a healthy path, we will go through the difficult process of reducing our global workforce on Friday. We recognize that this will impact a number of individuals who have made valuable contributions to Twitter, but this action is unfortunately necessary to ensure the company’s success moving forward.
Given the nature of our distributed workforce and our desire to inform impacted individuals as quickly as possible, communications for this process will take place via email. By 9AM PST on Friday Nov. 4th, everyone will receive an individual email with the subject line: Your Role at Twitter. Please check your email, including your spam folder.
– If your employment is not impacted, you will receive a notification via your Twitter email.
– If your employment is impacted, you will receive a notification with next steps via your personal email.
– If you do not receive an email from twitter-hr@ by 5PM PST on Friday Nov. 4th, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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. If you are in an office or on your way to an office, please return home.
We acknowledge this is an incredibly challenging experience to go through, whether or not you are impacted. Thank you for continuing to adhere to Twitter policies that prohibit you from discussing confidential company information on social media, with the press or elsewhere.
We are grateful for your contributions to Twitter and for your patience as we move through this process.
At the time of the publication of this article, the employees of the company will have received an email informing them of whether or not they have been cut, so those who are fired are already clearing out their desks and headed for the unemployment line.
Typically, on an average day, I would never advocate for the celebrating of a person losing their job, as that is wrong on many levels, but when it comes to those who work at Twitter, well, I have a different view. See, most of these workers are diehard liberals who played a part in helping to censor the political opinions of those who disagreed with the progressive agenda and the Democratic Party’s ideology.
Because of their suppression of certain news stories ahead of the 2020 presidential election, we got Joe Biden as our commander-in-chief. And we all see how that is going.
So while I don’t think we should necessarily celebrate the firings, I don’t think we really ought to be sad or distraught about them either. Many who are getting pink slipped earned it.
