Elon Musk is reportedly considering cutting more staff at Twitter

Twitter may cut more of its shrinking workforce as early as Monday. According to , Elon Musk is considering new layoffs that would target the company’s sales and partner teams. The magnitude of the potential cuts is unclear, but comes after a large number of employees. On Friday, Musk allegedly asked Robin Wheeler, Twitter’s head of ad sales, and Maggie Suniewick, the company’s head of partnerships, to lay off more employees. Both were terminated after being pushed back.

Twitter did not immediately respond to Engadget’s request for comment. The company no longer has a communications team. If Twitter goes through with the cuts, they would come after Musk laid off all of the company’s formerly 7,500-strong workforce. With most of the website and “at least 1,200” employees leaving in the wake of Musk’s ultimatum, there are that the expiration will make parts of Twitter unusable.

There are signs that this is already happening. On Saturday, some users noticed that the platform’s automated copyright complaint alert system was not working. Spotted in a thread someone posted the whole of The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift spanning nearly 50 tweets. The thread was active and widely shared for about an entire day before Twitter suspended the account responsible for posting the film.
