Twitter on a Hiring Spree After Weeks of Mass Layoffs

Twitter’s new owner Elon Musk told staff in an all-hands meeting that the company does not plan more layoffs and is recruiting for engineering and ad sales roles, according to a report. Musk on Monday tweeted that the company was pausing the relaunch of Twitter Blue until there was a “high confidence of stopping impersonation”.

“Holding off relaunch of Blue Verified until there is high confidence of stopping impersonation. Will probably use different color check for organisations than individuals,”said Musk in a tweet.

However, he did not provide a timeline of when the service is expected to be reintroduced.

Weeks after the company purged more than half of its 7,500 employees, the firm’s remaining workers were reportedly told that Twitter is looking to fill its engineering and sales teams and the company has encouraged employees to make referrals.

The ’employees needed’ news comes days after several of them departed the company after Musk ultimatum, that staffers sign up for “long hours at high intensity,” or leave. Last week, Musk emailed Twitter employees, saying: “Going forward, to build a breakthrough Twitter 2.0 and succeed in an increasingly competitive world, we will need to be extremely hardcore”.

As per reports, 42 percent of 180 people chose the answer for “Taking exit option, I’m free!” in a poll on the workplace app Blind, which verifies employees through their work email addresses and allows them to share information anonymously.
