O twitter is under new management. After Elon Musk passed the card and received the invoice, the social network has already received some changes on the home page of the site for those who have not yet logged in. Employees, however, are under strain due to layoffs that could happen over the next few days.
Modifications are now available to users. When accessing the homepage, visitors are taken directly to the Explore tab, which shows the most talked about topics on the social network. That is, you can see both curated and trending topics in your country.
The change allows users to have access to more information without having to log in to the platform. For example, this Monday (31), I was able to access the Elections 2022 section, which shows the latest news about the election. Sports and entertainment areas are also available.
The search bar also appears on the home screen. Users can now take surveys without logging into their account. The Settings tab is also available, with options to define access to data and even other information about the social network.
This is one of the first changes after the twitter purchase. Musk too intends to charge for verification of the social network.
Twitter employees could be fired
If, on the one hand, the social network “Chief Twit” has opened its doors to visitors, on the other hand, a concern is in the air. This is because the social network is preparing to reduce the payroll. This is what a report from the The New York Timespointing out that layoffs would take place in the coming months.
Layoffs must take place by November 1, 2022 – that is, tomorrow. According to the New York newspaper, this date allows employees to be terminated prior to the granting of shares. Thus, the company would not have to pay subsidies to employees who would be terminated in this wave.
Elon Musk denied the information from the American publication shortly afterwards. On Saturday, Eric Umansky of ProPublicahighlighted the report by the New York Times in a Twitter post. It didn’t take long and the billionaire replied on the same social network: “this is fake”.
However, the statement did not contain the atmosphere of apprehension in the company. Apparently, the leaders began to structure lists to point out who would be disconnected from the company. Musk and Tesla engineers are also being used to review the performance of Twitter employees, according to the newsletter. platformersigned by Casey Newton.
It should be noted that this is not the first time that a story about layoffs has surfaced. On the 20th, the Washington Post informed that Elon Musk Intended to Fire 75% of Twitter Employees after acquisition. The billionaire, however, backtracked shortly thereafter, but made it clear that there would be cuts in the company.
