Fired Twitter Employee Shouts About Company’s “Red Wedding”

“Twitter is… It became a reality and it was fun. But the ending wasn’t really fun. He was one of about 3,700 of the company’s roughly 7,500 or so employees laid off by new owner Elon Musk this week. Others have provided references to popular culture. “Has the red wedding started?” According to the New York Times, an employee wrote to Slack just minutes before the company sent out an email announcing layoffs. All employees reported different languages ​​in the notices they sent. Some samples: “We know this will affect many individuals who have made valuable contributions to Twitter, but unfortunately this action is necessary to ensure the success of the company.” “…I would like to inform you that your role on Twitter has been identified as potentially affected or at risk of duplication.” “During this period, you will be notified of no work and access to the Twitter system will be disabled.” Many leaving employees were notified by email. Or, as one person put it, “I received an official (and very inhumane) dismissal email.” Another employee simply assumed that they were blocked from the system and that the service was no longer needed. “Looks like I’m unemployed. I remotely logged out of my work laptop and removed it from Slack.” Twitter also locked all employees in their offices, whether they were fired or not. One notice reads: “To ensure the safety of each employee and the Twitter system and customer data, our offices will be temporarily closed and access to all badges will be suspended.” Employees in New York, California and the company’s Dublin, Ireland hub were affected. According to former member Joan Deitchman, the seemingly important Ethics, Transparency and Responsibility team has lost about 20 people the entire workforce. “Yes, the team is gone,” she wrote last night. “The team that researched and promoted algorithm transparency and algorithm selection. A team working on algorithm amplification. A team that invents and builds ethical AI tools and methodologies. It’s all gone.” Others fired were the company’s global head of social and editorial and his team of 17 people, Twitter’s global head of culture and community, and head of content for creators in the United States. Additional departments impacted include Community, Learning Design, Entertainment Partnerships, Engineering, iOS Development, Global Wellness and Global Communications.
