After Twitter Inc laid off half of its employees Friday following Elon Musk’s $44 billion acquisition, the company is now reaching out to dozens of employees who lost their jobs and asking them to return, Bloomberg News reported Sunday.
Some of those who were asked back were wrongfully dismissed. Others were let go before management realized their work and experience was necessary to build the new features Elon Musk envisioned, the report said, citing people familiar with the moves.
Twitter has recently laid off 50% of its employees, including employees on the trust and safety team, Yoel Roth, the company’s head of safety and integrity, said in a tweet earlier this week.
Teams responsible for tweets from the social media company’s employees, communications, content moderation, human rights and machine learning ethics were among those wiped out, as were some product and engineering teams.
Twitter updated its app on the Apple App Store on Saturday and began charging $8 for blue check verification marks, in Elon Musk’s first major overhaul of the social media platform.
Twitter did not immediately respond to Reuters’ request for comment.
