Twitter announced it had begun informing employees that they should be fired after ownership of the social networking platform was transferred to Elon Musk.

Employees began messaging each other on social media, announcing their departure.

An internal email claimed that the job cuts were “intended to put Twitter on a healthy path.”

The company said it will temporarily close its offices and that its employees will not be able to enter until they know if they have lost their jobs.
