Twitter Announces Layoffs

From a memo Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey sent to staff this morning:

So we have made an extremely tough decision: we plan to part ways with up to 336 people from across the company. We are doing this with the utmost respect for each and every person. Twitter will go to great lengths to take care of each individual by providing generous exit packages and help finding a new job.

What I’m hearing from those at Twitter is that the respect and courtesy mentioned in the memo isn’t exactly present in these layoffs. People are finding out that they’ve been cut because their internal email account stops working.
