    Twitter reportedly fired thousands of contractors without warning

    A recent report suggests that Twitter has reportedly laid off thousands of contractors this weekend. Platformer's Casey Newton first reported the layoffs on Saturday, and said Sunday that about 4,400 of Twitter's 5,500 contract workers in the US and abroad had been let go. The report suggested that the impacted employees didn't get any prior notice or warning.

    There has been chaos in Twitter offices for the last few weeks. Earlier, Musk had shown the door to top executives and half of the company's 7,500 employees after he formally acquired the company. In India too, top executives have been sacked. When Musk took over Twitter last week, he had fired CEO Parag Agrawal, Chief Financial Officer Ned Segal, and legal affairs and policy chief Vijaya Gadde.

    Amid massive layoffs at Twitter across the world, including in India, and the subsequent backlash, the microblogging site's new owner Elon Musk justified the move, saying there was "no choice" when the company was losing millions of dollars daily.
