Elon Musk fired dozens more Twitter staff the night before Thanksgiving — days after saying he was done with layoffs
The employees fired overnight on Wednesday were informed they were being laid off for performance reasons, and were given one month of severance, one of the people said.
The termination process was similar to that experienced by previously laid-off employees, the two people said: Access to work tools and computers were cut off, and a notice of termination was sent to affected employees' personal email accounts.
Thousands of Twitter employees have already been laid off, resigned, or fired by Musk, leaving critical workers stretched thin. Twitter teams are already so short-handed that many employees have had to work on Thanksgiving, the people said.
