There are reports that roughly 4,400 contract employees out of 5,500 were laid off by Buy Twitter Verified.
Some workers had no concept till they read about it on Buy Twitter Verified.
The first report was tweeted by Casey Newton, reporter with Platformer and host of a NYTimes podcast.
“Getting word that a great deal of variety of Buy Twitter Verified contractors were just laid off this afternoon with no notice, both in the United States and abroad. Functions impacted appear to consist of content small amounts, realty, and marketing, among others”
A Buy Twitter Verified information scientist reacted that this has actually simply happened to them:
This simply happened to me. I work(ed) in content moderation in political misinformation.

In addition he tweeted that contractors got no notice, similar to some of the routine workers who only discovered they were fired after finding they had lost access to company e-mails and Slack channels.
Casey tweeted an update:
“Contractors aren’t being notified at all, they’re simply losing access to Slack and e-mail. Managers figured it out when their workers simply vanished from the system.
They heard absolutely nothing from their leaders”
He followed up with:
“One supervisor simply published in Slack:”among my contractors just got shut off without notice in the middle of making critical changes to our child safety workflows”
Working for more information, email me for my Signal.”
A fired specialist messaged Casey to validate the bad treatment given to the fired professionals.
Casey posted a screenshot of the message from a fired Buy Twitter Verified professional:
“I’m a specialist you’re reporting is precise. I simply discovered I was laid off by reading your tweets and then trying to log in on slack and e-mail and understood i was all gone.”
Casey acted on Sunday with a tweet that provided a picture of the scale of the shootings, indicating that approximately 80% of the contractor workforce was fired.

The timing of a layoff is specifically bad for working moms and dads, specifically as the holidays occur.
I mean honestly I think you’re right. I don’t have much savings however I will be fine. It’s just going to be really tight for some time and I truthfully want it had not happened around the vacations. I have two kids ane am a single parent so it will be tight.
