Bloomberg reported today, Saturday, that Twitter has laid off more workers in the trust and safety team that deals with global content moderation and in the unit related to hate speech and harassment.
The agency quoted informed sources as saying that at least 10 more cuts on Friday night affected workers in the company’s offices in Dublin and Singapore.
Bloomberg reported that among those laid off from the social networking platform owned by billionaire “Elon Musk” are Nour Azhar bin Ayoub, who was recently appointed head of site safety in the Asia-Pacific region, and Analoisa Dominguez, senior director of revenue policy at Twitter.
It added that staff had also been laid off in teams dealing with disinformation policy, global appeals and government media on the platform.

Globally, Twitter has reduced its staff by almost half, which is equivalent to about 3,700 employees.
Last October, Musk became the new owner of Twitter, firing a number of senior executives whom he accused of misleading him about the number of spam accounts.
