‘Looks Like I’m unemployed’ Twitter says 50 staff laid moves reassure content moderation 

Twitter had about 7,500 workers prior to Musk's takeover, meaning roughly 3,700 employees were laid off.

Are Twitter Lay Off Legal? Mass layoffs can trigger federal and state laws. Twitter's layoffs necessarily violate laws like the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act.

Musk immediately became Twitter's new owner on Oct 27th afternoon.
