Last week, the social media giant reported that it would lay off 30% of its talent acquisition team.

Revised Business Needs

Twitter announced it would cut 30% of its recruitment team. This is less than 100 people.

It also announced that it would pause the hiring process. Only the “business-critical” positions remain open. In addition, the platform will cut back on non-labor costs.

A company’s spokesperson quoted “revised business needs” as the reason. Twitter’s stock shares fell roughly 4% last Friday. The social media giant has been having issues on that front since the beginning of the year. Investors even blamed Elon Musk for stock manipulation

Teodora devoted her whole life to words – reading, writing and trying to be original on social media. She got certified in digital marketing but still feels she’s not cool enough to be an influencer. (We all disagree – she influences the team pretty well.) She finished a master’s degree focused in Literature, Publishing, Mass Media. Her hobbies include traveling, and reading. Teddy hopes that yoga will be the thing to finally teach her some patience and show her the path toward world domination. Maybe modern tech can also help her with that.
