Is twitter left with 1300 employees? What does Elon Musk say?
Elon Musk issued a clarification tweet correcting the number reported in the article along with additional details. He states there are 2300 actively working employees.

A media report claimed that in the American social media company, Twitter, about 80 percent of its employees shrunk since Elon Musk took over.

The report also claimed that now the headcount is nearly 1,300 working employees. However, Elon Musk issued a clarification tweet correcting the number reported in the article along with additional details. He said that there are 2300 actively working employees.

Elon Musk shared a Tweet saying, “The note is incorrect. There are ~2300 active, working employees at Twitter. There are still hundreds of employees working on trust & safety, along with several thousand contractors.”

“Less than 10 people from my other companies are working at Twitter”, Elon Musk added.

Musk took over as CEO of Twitter in October and has implemented a number of changes to the company’s product and organizational structure.

Earlier, Elon Musk-owned Twitter is reportedly looking to shed its co-working spaces in Delhi and Mumbai after having already done so in Bengaluru.

The process for vacating offices was initiated in December last year, according to reports citing sources.

Around 150 of the company’s employees work at the WeWork facility in Mumbai’s BKC, and 80 at The Executive Centre in Delhi’s Qutub area.

According to the sources, the company has also given up co-working spaces in Bengaluru, indicating that this was due to global changes within the company.

Previously, Musk, who failed to pay the rent for Twitter headquarters in San Francisco, asked its remaining staff in Singapore to stop coming to the office and work remotely as the company has reportedly failed to pay the monthly rent.

According to reports, Twitter employees were informed about the decision via email, instructing them to leave the CapitaGreen building and work from home.

Casey Newton of Platformer said in a tweet on Thursday, “Twitter employees were just walked out of its Singapore office – its Asia-Pacific headquarters – over nonpayment of rent”.

“Landlords walked employees out of the building,” he posted.
