Twitter has arranged off the majority of its employees in Ghana, which would be located in West Africa, as part of an enormous worldwide period of unemployment that has affected employees at the twitter website ever since Elon Musk purchased the company per week ago. Twitter opened its inaugural office in Africa in Ghana a year ago, making it the initial country in Africa where it had a presence.
Additionally, the layoffs came only three days after Twitter employees in Ghana formally began office operations in Ghana.
Since he seized control of the firm, Musk has been conducting a purge in which he has fired a large number of employees.
It is not known how many employees were impacted in the Africa Office; however, sources indicate that the social media company intends to eliminate around 3,700 positions.
After the layoffs were announced on Friday, November 4, 2022, several employees at its US headquarters requested assistance connecting on to the company’s systems.
Although proclaiming the company’s formal presence on the continent, the majority of employees at the African headquarters in Ghana worked from their homes and different nations.
Since Twitter confirmed its presence in Africa, the employees have officially restarted in the Ghana headquarters.
The Guardian reports that Twitter is facing a class action lawsuit from former workers who claim they did not get proper notice as required under US federal law.
On Thursday, the employees claimed that they were locked out of their work accounts.
