As per The Verge report, Musk has done with the firing of Twitter staff, it’s time to hire new employees for Twitter.
Following the recent termination of nearly two-thirds of its 7,500-person workforce, Twitter is preparing to resume hiring. The first round of layoffs occurred in the first week after Elon Musk officially acquired control of the business in late October. Subsequently, more employees were let go in the ensuing weeks. Up until last week, when Musk gave the remaining workers a request to follow the new, more stringent work guidelines or quit. Almost 1,000 Twitter employees resigned together as a result of this.
Musk reportedly informed staff on Monday that the company is no longer making layoffs, adding the company is “actively recruiting for openings in engineering and sales and that employees are encouraged to make references.” Notably, Monday was the day Twitter was supposed to let go of its sales team.
According to the article, Musk did not identify the kinds of engineering positions Twitter is seeking, and the firm has not yet posted any job openings. In the discussion, Musk added, “I would say that folks who are fantastic at developing software are the top priority in terms of crucial hiring.”
Although it would make sense to have “dual-headquartered” offices in Texas and California, the CEO claims that there are “no plans” to locate the business’s headquarters there, as he did with Tesla.
“If we want to move the headquarters to Texas, I think it would play into the idea that Twitter has gone from being left-wing to right-wing, which is not the case,”
Musk told employees. “This is not a right-wing takeover of Twitter. It is a moderate-wing takeover of Twitter,” he added.
According to reports from The Verge and Bloomberg, Musk’s Twitter fired several members of the sales and partnership teams on Monday. Since he took over the business on October 27, numerous senior engineers and managers have quit their jobs or been fired. Twitter employs about 2,700 people, down from over 7,500 in September 2022.
