After Twitter Inc laid off about half of its staff on Friday following its $44 billion acquisition of Elon Musk, the company is now reaching out to dozens of employees who have lost their jobs and asking them to return, Bloomberg News reported on Sunday. .
Some of those asked to return have been accidentally fired. Others were fired before management realized their work and experience may be needed to build the new features Elon Musk envisions, the report said, citing people familiar with the moves.
Twitter recently fired 50% of its employees, including those on its trust and security team, Yoel Roth, the company’s chief of security and integrity, said in a tweet earlier this week.
Tweets by employees of the social media company said teams responsible for communications, content curation, human rights and machine learning ethics were among those stripped, as were some product and engineering teams.
Twitter updated its app on Apple’s App Store on Saturday to charge $8 for coveted blue checks, in Elon Musk’s first major overhaul of the social media platform.
Twitter did not immediately respond to Reuters’ request for comment.
