(Reuters) – Twitter’s head of Safety & Integrity, Yoel Roth, said on Friday that layoffs at the company affected about 50% of employees following Twitter’s acquisition by billionaire Elon Musk.
“Yesterday’s reduction in force affected approximately 15% of our Trust & Safety organization (as opposed to approximately 50% cuts company-wide), with our front-line moderation staff experiencing the least impact,” he said in a tweet.
