Elon Musk is planning to fire 1,000 staffers at Twitter as soon as his purchase of the social media platform is complete.
It’s believed he will fire many of the firm’s woke staff following the transfer of ownership which will take around six months, after which Musk is likely to wield the ax.
But then within the next three years, Musk anticipates making thousands of new hires, swelling the ranks to around 11,000 employees, up from 7,500 currently.
Much of the new talent is likely to be in the field of engineering.
Musk is said to favor a subscription-based model over advertiser funding, as it would make Twitter less beholden to advertiser pressure. He has even suggested users could pay with cryptocurrency, including joke currency Dogecoin which Musk has long had an affection for.
I have to say it is a smart move on his part. $3 a month is not a big amount pretty much anywhere in the world. Hell, I get less satisfaction paying 4 times more with Netfilx. Hell, the firing of the Censors and future workers of US MinTrue is a huge advance.
