REPORT: Twitter about to get SHRUNK as Musk plans first round of huge layoffs after hinting at the bloat of employees…

Elon Musk suggested there’s a tremendous bloat of employees at Twitter over the weekend when he responded to a question from a Twitter user.

The user asked Musk what’s the most messed up thing at Twitter.

Musk responded “There seem to be 10 people “managing” for every one person coding”

Someone else tweeted a meme based on Musk’s response and he responded “pretty much”:

To that end, it is now being reported that Musk is planning huge cuts to Twitter’s workforce.

Members of billionaire Elon Musk’s inner circle huddled with Twitter’s remaining senior executives throughout the weekend, conducting detailed discussions regarding the site’s approach to content moderation, as well as plans to lay off 25 percent of the workforce to start.

Meanwhile, the team was deciding on what is expected to be a first round of layoffs, which will target roughly a quarter of the staff totaling more than 7,000, according to one of the people. Layoffs will touch almost all departments, and are expected to specifically impact sales, product, engineering, legal, and trust and safety in the coming days, the person said. After engineers, some of Twitter’s highest paid employees work in sales, where several earn more than $300,000, according to documents viewed by The Post.

Twitter, Musk, Spiro, Sacks and Calacanis did not respond to requests for comment.

It was reported over the weekend by the New York Times that Musk would begin cutting employees one day before employees were “to get part of their year-end compensation.” Musk denied this.

Musk also later mocked the New York Times for this, as they were attacking him for posting a link to a story about Paul Pelosi that he later deleted:
