Ripples Nigeria had reported that big tech companies such as Twitter, Meta and Amazon recently shed weight in circumstances linked to bankruptcy and low revenue.

While a large percentage was, however, due to layoffs executed by the CEO, some key officials at the company tendered their resignations, a decision said to be in protest and unwillingness to work with the new Twitter owner, Elon Musk.

Some persons present at the meeting also noted that Musk mentioned the possibility of Twitter hiring new hands in weeks ahead.

Whether Musk, during the purported hiring window, will favour an ex-Twitter staff over others without Twitter work experience cannot be ascertained for now.
