Elon Musk is asking some laid-off employees to rejoin, report


New Delhi: Some (now ex-)Twitter employees are apparently being asked by Elon Musk to return to the company as he may have accidentally fired them. According to Bloomberg, the microblogging platform is bringing back some of its laid-off employees to “create the additional features Musk envisions.”

Musk said last week he had to lay off employees because the company was losing $4 million every day. Thousands of people lost their jobs as a result. In fact, Twitter even told employees who were on their way to work to return home.

According to recent reports, “Twitter is reaching out to scores of employees who have lost their jobs and asking them to come back.” There are rumors that some workers were accidentally laid off. However, the company has not yet released any information about the officials involved.

For those unaware, microblogging service Twitter laid off thousands of employees last week. In India, all teams from marketing, sales and communications departments have been laid off. Soon after, employees took to social media sites to discuss their experiences of working for the company.

Elon Musk said in response to the layoff that the company was losing $4 million a day and that all they could do was relieve workers of their obligations. He added that all employees received severance pay for 3 months, which is 50% more than required by law.
