Among those laid off by the the social media giant run by Elon Musk is Nur Azhar Bin Ayob, a recent hire as director of integrity for the region of Asia- Pacific, and Analuisa Dominguez, Twitter’s senior director of revenue policy.

The number of individuals working on policy related to misinformation, global appeals, and state media on the platform was decreased, according to the report.

Twitter’s vice president of trust and safety, Ella Irwin, told Reuters that Twitter decided to lose some security staff on Friday night.  “We have thousands of people within Trust and Safety who work content moderation and have not made cuts to the teams that do that work daily,” she said via email.

Some cuts yielded areas that lacked sufficient volume, while others prompted opportunities for consolidation, she added.

Twitter disbanded approximately 3,700 employees in the early November to cut costs primarily by Elon Musk, and dozens more later followed resigned.

It is pertinent to mention here that the company was sued last month for allegedly discriminating against female employees in layoffs.
