Twitter is set to inform its staff on Friday whether they have been laid off, temporarily closing its offices and preventing staff access, following a week of uncertainty about the company’s future under new owner Elon Musk. “In an effort to place Twitter on a healthy path, we will go through the difficult process of reducing our global workforce on Friday,” said an email, seen by Reuters.
Twitter said its offices will be temporarily closed and all badge access will be suspended in order “to help ensure the safety of each employee as well as Twitter systems and customer data”.
