I don’t often celebrate when people lose their jobs, but according to reports, Elon Musk is set to fire 75 percent of Twitter’s work force once he takes command of the social media company.
And no one deserves it more.
These fascists do not belong lording over people’s free speech.
Per Just the News:
The firm currently employs roughly 7,500 people. Documents the Washington Post obtained indicate that Musk plans to operate the platform with approximately 2,000 employees. Musk’s purchase of Twitter could reportedly close as soon as next week.
Musk announced in late April that he had agreed to purchase Twitter for $44 billion. He ultimately withdrew his bid citing the prevalence of bot accounts on the platform, prompting Twitter to sue him to complete the deal. Amid a tense legal battle, Musk made a surprise offer to honor his original deal, which in turn led to a judge staying the suit.
His purchase of the platform has attracted federal scrutiny, including from the Securities and Exchange Commission, which has long raised questions about Musk’s other operations.
The billionaire has vowed to curtail the platform’s censorship of dissenting viewpoints and to restore former President Donald Trump’s account.
These fascists need to be chased out of big tech permanently.Commentary
