"Lay-off has started. Some of my colleagues have received email notification regarding this," a Twitter India employee told PTI on condition of anonymity.

The lay-offs have affected a "significant chunk" of the India team, said another Employee.

However, the full details of the job cuts were not immediately available. Twitter India is yet to issue any statement on this.

According to the news agency PTI, US media reported that Musk "planned to begin laying off workers" at Twitter as soon as on Friday.

Prior to Musk's acquisition of Twitter, reports were circulated that he will cut headcount, with some reports claiming 75% of the workforce at the company could be laid off, as per PTI inputs.

Earlier, Musk had informed that Twitter will form a content moderation council "with widely diverse viewpoints."

"Twitter will be forming a content moderation council with widely diverse viewpoints. No major content decisions or account reinstatements will happen before that council convenes," he tweeted recently.

Musk also announced that the verification 'blue tick' in front of user's name that authenticates the account will be charged eight dollars per month. Ever since Musk decided to buy the platform, the talks of lifting ban on several accounts including that of former US president Donald Trump have been discussed.

The new Twitter owner on Wednesday said that it will be "a few more weeks" before any banned accounts may be restored on the platform.
