Twitter will lay off up to one in 12, or a total of 336 employees as it streamlines its product roadmap, new CEO Jack Dorsey told his workforce on Tuesday morning.
The company will in future focus “on the experiences which will have the greatest impact,” he wrote in a letter to staff.
In Dorsey’s tweet announcing the news, he said that he had made “some tough but necessary decisions that enable Twitter to move with greater focus and reinvest in our growth.”
Although Dorsey was only confirmed in his role as CEO last week, he has been filling in since Dick Costolo stepped down on July 1, and so has had ample time to influence the company’s strategy.
