Musk: The number of Twitter employees is about 2,300


Elon Musk said in a tweet today, Saturday, that Twitter has about 2,300 working employees.

A report revealed that about 80 percent of Twitter employees have resigned or been laid off since the founder of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk, acquired the company last October.

And the American “CNBC” channel quoted the company’s internal data as saying that the number of permanent cadres in “Twitter” decreased to about 1,300 people, and the number of full-time engineers in the company was less than 550 people.

The data also indicated that there are about 1,400 other employees who do not currently perform any tasks, but they are still employees of the company and receive their salaries.

One of the engineers who resigned from the company considered that such a loss of cadres might complicate ensuring the platform’s operation and adding new services to it.

It is noteworthy that a large proportion of the employees were laid off by the decision of the new management, and others resigned due to changes in the company’s policies, including the termination of the work from home that was allowed by the previous manager, Jack Dorsey.

Musk had acquired Twitter in late October 2022 in a deal worth $44 billion, and the number of employees in the company was about 7.5 thousand people before the acquisition deal, according to Business Insider data.
