According to reports in the New York Times, it said the tech giant had cut 10% of its current workforce, which it estimated at 2,000 staff.

This is the latest round of job losses at Twitter since chief executive Elon Musk sacked about 50% of its 7,500 employees when he took over in October.

Flash Sales

As staff learned of their fate, Mr Musk tweeted: “Hope you have a good Sunday. First day of the rest of your life.”

Esther Crawford, chief executive of Twitter Payments, who oversaw the Twitter Blue verification subscription model, said she was “deeply proud of my team” in a tweet after being among those released.

“Waking up to find I’ve been locked out of my email. Looks like I’m let go. Now my Revue journey is really over” Martijn tweeted.
