On Friday, Elon Musk sacked over 500 Twitter employees as a part of his major overhaul of the troubled company. An internal document seen by The Fauxy said “500 employees were caught using twitter during office hours”. The report was given to Elon Musk by the top twitter officials.
Soon after the report, The Twitter’s new owner, Elon Musk fired those 500 employees without any notice.
