Twitter’s mass layoffs have come. The social platform will never be the same.

The old Twitter is dead, buried by mass layoffs. Just a week into billionaire Elon Musk’s tenure as Chief Twit, and he’s now laid off a large portion of the staff, leaving the social platform reeling with an uncertain future.

 

More than a million Twitter accounts have been deactivated or suspended in the week since Elon Musk’s takeover, report says

Almost 900,000 users have deactivated their Twitter accounts since Elon Musk took over. That’s according to analysis by Bot Sentinel, first reported by the MIT Technology Review. A further 497,000 accounts have been suspended in the days since Musk’s takeover was finalized.

“Celebrities like “Bridgerton” creator Shonda Rhimes are among those who’ve said they are quitting Twitter in recent days. Numerous top executives have also either quit or been fired from the company, with around 50% of staff expected to be laid off starting Friday.

The exodus could spell trouble for Twitter, as Musk looks to increase revenues at the company and bring it to profitability. He plans to introduce a controversial $8 monthly charge for verification, and, per the Washington Post, a “paywalled video” feature which has been compared to OnlyFans.

The New York Times reported that the site has not turned a profit in eight of the last ten years, while the debt incurred by Musk’s deal requires $1 billion a year in interest payments alone”.

Elon Musk said Friday that Twitter has experienced “a massive drop in revenue” due to advertisers leaving the platform. The big picture: Before Musk’s acquisition of Twitter, marketers expressed concerns about how Musk would handle content moderation on the platform because he has said he will embrace a free speech-first approach.

Musk’s tweet comes on the same day that the social media platform has begun laying off thousands of employees.

State of play: General Motors, Pfizer and Audi are among the companies that have pulled their ads from Twitter due to content moderation concerns, per the Wall Street Journal and CNBC.

  • General Mills also said it paused advertising on Twitter, with a spokeswoman telling the Star Tribune the company “will continue to monitor this new direction and evaluate our marketing spend.”
  • GLAAD, Leaders of Voto Latino, Color of Change, Media Matters and other advocacy groups on Friday called on companies to pause Twitter ads, saying the recent layoffs will put content moderation standards at risk.
  • Last Tuesday, more than 40 civil rights and civil society groups urged Twitter’s top 20 advertisers to suspend ads on the platform, too.

 

 

Elon Musk Reaps What He Sowed

Elon Musk continues to crumble after purchasing Twitter by blaming activists for Twitter losing revenue when in reality he is making and claiming he will make clear changes to the social media platform.

 

Elon Musk’s plans to Unban Trump prove he doesn’t care that Trump used twitter to incite riots, insurrection & violence which caused 5 deaths by his supporters and attempted to stay in office by a coup d’etat.
