Job cuts in Twitter; employees lose systems access without notice

New Delhi: On Friday, around 200 employees of Twitter India lost access to their official emails, internal Slack and group chats. The development is attributed to the major thinning initiated on Twitter's workforce after Elon Musk took over the company, IANS reported.

The said employees, who were working from home, tried to log into their systems but were denied access, which ultimately meant they were terminated from service, but the same was not even communicated to them.

Some, under the request of anonymity, told IANS, "Now we are waiting for the email with the subject line 'if your employment is impacted, you will receive a notification with next steps via your personal email', as mentioned by the company. We are clueless on our severance pay, etc."

Earlier, employees on Twitter had complained about a lack of internal communication from their senior executives, which they used to have through Slack and group chat groups after Musk took the platform's steering.

"It is one of the most inhumane ways to get rid of us. After spending so many years at Twitter India, we were left without any communication since Musk took over."

Many employees, who are still with Twitter India, are in constant fear of being fired in the next round. Musk reportedly targets to cut the 7,600-strong workforce to 3,800.

The new CEO aims to cut roughly half of its 7,600-strong workforce, about 3,800 employees.

Meanwhile, the company said that the employee badge access to Twitter's offices has already been shut off "temporarily".

"To help ensure the safety of each employee as well as Twitter systems and customer data, our offices will be temporarily closed, and all badge access will be suspended. If you are in an office or on your way to an office, please return home," Twitter said in an internal memo.
