Urban Tech Story | Twitter is making a layoff list internally

Elon Musk’s first day on the job has Twitter employees working late nights and weekends while their managers draft layoffs. Musk believes that he fired executives such as former CEO Parag Agrawal for “for cause” and therefore does not need to pay tens of millions of dollars in severance pay, while Agrawal and others are weighing their options. Employees who remain at the company fear being fired before November 1, when the stock is given away. Musk himself has denied the rumors. For code reviews, managers were told that Musk wanted their programming speed and efficiency to meet his demands, and he would weed out engineering managers who no longer wrote code as often. Musk also changed Twitter’s homepage, redirecting pages visited by unlogged users to an Explore page that showcases trends and news stories.
