Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, recently tweeted that Twitter has 2,300 active employees and that a recent report stating that 75% of Twitter employees were on leave is not true. He also added that the company has a strong engineering team that is working hard to improve the platform.
The report that Musk is refuting was published by The Verge, which cited an anonymous source who claimed that 75% of Twitter’s workforce had been placed on an extended leave of absence. The report also stated that the company was facing a challenging business environment, with a decline in ad revenue and user growth.
Twitter has not commented on the accuracy of the report or the number of employees on leave, but it is likely that the company is facing challenges due to the ongoing pandemic and the economic downturn. However, it’s important to note that the information provided by anonymous sources should be taken with a grain of salt and should be fact-checked before being considered as true.
It’s worth noting that Elon Musk is not an employee of Twitter and is not privy to the company’s internal data, and therefore his tweets should not be considered as official confirmation of the information.
