The new layoffs reportedly hit “misinformation” monitors and other content moderators
Twitter has fired at least a dozen employees responsible for handling “misinformation policy, global appeals and state media” at its Dublin and Singapore offices, Bloomberg reported on Saturday, citing people familiar with the matter. It’s the latest in a series of radical reforms conducted by the social media platform’s new CEO, Elon Musk.
Twitter’s head of Trust and Safety, Ella Irwin, told the publication that in order to “consolidate teams,” the company eliminated duplicate positions and jobs with insufficient workload to justify their existence. Friday’s cuts reportedly affected the head of site integrity for Twitter’s Asia-Pacific region, Nur Azhar Bin Ayob, and senior director of revenue policy, Analuisa Dominguez, while others asked not to be identified.
