Twitter could have terminated nearly 4,400 external collaborations without warning

After initiating an internal revolution, which has so far resulted in the layoffs of nearly 50% of the total internal workforce, Twitter was also going to decide Termination of relationships with approximately 4,400 external contractors (out of a total of about 5,500), American and foreign. According to what the journalist said Casey Newton CNBC also confirmed it, everything will be put into place without any kind of notification.

Most of these collaborators, mostly residing in India, did not learn of the termination of the business relationship until after they had lost access to both their email inbox and all of the company’s internal communications systems. According to rumors, many of them were busy monitoring content, marketing and maintaining critical infrastructure.

This decision is the latest in the chronological order placed by Elon Musk after the acquisition of Twitter last October. After firing about 3,700 employees outright, Musk eliminated the ability to work from home for anyone else by requiring at least 40 hours a week in the office. For their part, the dismissed people have already decided to file a class action claiming that the company had to have a child WARN RULES (Labour Amendment and Retraining Notification Act).

At the moment, the situation in Twitter may seem baffling to say the least, and everything that happens will be the result of a financially precarious situation, which has so far also led to the voluntary resignations of many directors including the Chief Information Security OfficerLeah Kessner Elle chief privacy officer, Damien Keran and chief compliance officer, Marian Fogarty.

In recent days, Twitter founder Jack Dorsey has “apologised” for the company’s growth “too quickly.” In June 2013, just prior to its public listing, Twitter had approximately 2,000 employees. At the end of last year, there were approximately 7,500 full-time employees.

Musk had immediately “justified” his choice to downsize the workforce because “there was no other choice” given the company was losing more than $4 million a day. All those who have been laid off can still be laid off for 3 months, which is 50% more than required by US law.

Among Musk’s other decisions was the decision to give a “blue check” to all blue Twitter subscribers at a cost of $8 per month, which caused much confusion and led to the creation of a second official “badge” that should allow instant recognition for an account of a company or other public figure.
