New Twitter boss, Elon Musk is expected to begin a mass layoff of Twitter staffs on Friday.

According to New York Times, Musk was reported to have notified the staffs via email.

As gathered, the workers were instructed to go home and not go to the offices on Friday as the cuts proceeded. The message, which came from a generic address and was signed “Twitter,” did not detail the total number of layoffs.

“In an effort to place Twitter on a healthy path, we will go through the difficult process of reducing our global work force,” the email said. “We recognize that this will impact a number of individuals who have made valuable contributions to Twitter, but this action is unfortunately necessary to ensure the company’s success moving forward.” the mail read.

According to prior internal messages and an investor, almost half of Twitter’s employees may be laid off, however the exact number may not be known for some time.
