«Con l’acquisto e il controllo del social-media Twitter da parte di Elon Musk torna la libertà di parola, opinione e comunicazione per centinaia di milioni di utenti attivi in tutto il mondo»

* * * * * * *

                         Subito dopo aver ratificato l’acquisizione di Twitter, Musk aveva già licenziato diversi alti dirigenti, tra cui l’amministratore delegato, Parag Agrawal, il direttore finanziario, Ned Segal, e il responsabile degli affari legali e della politica, Vijaya Gadde.

                         Con l’acquisto e il controllo del social-media Twitter da parte di Elon Musk torna la libertà di parola, opinione e comunicazione per centinaia di milioni di utenti attivi in tutto il mondo (396 a ottobre 2022). A fine marzo, il geniale e più ricco uomo del mondo Elon Musk aveva fatto un sondaggio tra i suoi 100 milioni di follower su Twitter, chiedendo la loro opinione sull’effettiva libertà di parola e di espressione sul social media che, in passato, aveva deciso di bandire definitivamente Trump nel febbraio 2021 e di censurare contenuti e messaggi pro-vita e pro-famiglia. Il risultato era stato chiaro, con il 70% (1,4 milioni di votanti su 2 milioni) convinto che Twitter non rispettasse il primo principio della democrazia: la libertà di parola e di opinione.

                         Da allora e fino a pochi giorni fa, Elon Musk ha deciso di acquistare Twitter e di estromettere manager e dirigenti che non rispettavano la libertà di parola e di espressione per motivi politici. L’uomo più ricco del mondo, Elon Musk, ha completato l’acquisizione di Twitter per 44 miliardi di dollari lo scorso 28 ottobre, e lo stesso Musk ha annunciato: L’uccellino [simbolo del social media Twitter] è stato liberato. Lo stesso giorno sono stati licenziati alcuni dirigenti, tra cui l’amministratore delegato Parag Agrawal, che è stato scortato fuori dalla sede. Musk ha dichiarato di non volere che la piattaforma diventi un amplificatore per l’odio, in un’ampia dichiarazione pubblicata sulla piattaforma: Twitter ovviamente non può diventare un inferno libero dove si può dire qualsiasi cosa senza conseguenze!. Tuttavia, la libertà di opinione e di parola e il dibattito ragionevole saranno consentiti a tutti, senza che alcuna decisione politica o ideologica impedisca a chiunque si opponga al pensiero liberale dominante di esprimersi liberamente.

                         Qual è esattamente l’algoritmo di Twitter che ha censurato le opinioni dei conservatori, di chi ha deriso il presidente Biden, di chi si è opposto agli abortisti o ha messo in discussione la dottrina del vaccino Covid? Da qualche giorno, le persone che non potevano parlare saranno autorizzate a farlo dal nuovo.

                         Venerdì Twitter Inc. comunicherà ai dipendenti via e-mail se sono stati licenziati, chiudendo temporaneamente gli uffici e impedendo l’accesso al personale, dopo una settimana di incertezza sul futuro dell’azienda sotto il nuovo proprietario Elon Musk. In un’e-mail inviata al personale, la società di social media ha dichiarato che venerdì alle 9.00, ora del Pacifico (12.00 EDT/1600 GMT) avviserà i dipendenti dei tagli al personale.

                         La società di social media ha dichiarato in un’e-mail al personale che avrebbe avvisato i dipendenti entro le 9 ora del Pacifico di venerdì (12 p.m. EDT/1600 GMT) dei tagli al personale. Nel tentativo di riportare Twitter su un percorso sano, venerdì affronteremo il difficile processo di riduzione della nostra forza lavoro globale. Musk, la persona più ricca del mondo, sta cercando di tagliare circa 3.700 dipendenti di Twitter, ovvero circa la metà della forza lavoro, nel tentativo di ridurre i costi e imporre una nuova etica del lavoro esigente.

                         Musk ha incaricato i team di Twitter di trovare fino a 1 miliardo di dollari di risparmi annuali sui costi della infrastruttura. Ha già fatto piazza pulita dei vertici dell’azienda, licenziando l’amministratore delegato e i principali dirigenti finanziari e legali. Altri, tra cui quelli che siedono ai vertici delle divisioni pubblicità, marketing e risorse umane, hanno lasciato l’azienda nel corso della scorsa settimana.

                         I licenziamenti, che erano attesi da tempo, hanno messo in crisi la cultura aziendale di Twitter, notoriamente aperta e lodata da molti dei suoi dipendenti.

Twitter layoffs to start today, company tells staff in an email

Nov 4 (Reuters) – Twitter Inc will tell employees by email on Friday about whether they have been laid off, temporarily closing its offices and preventing staff access, following a week of uncertainty about the company’s future under new owner Elon Musk.

The social media company said in an email to staff it would alert employees by 9 a.m. Pacific time on Friday (12 p.m. EDT/1600 GMT) about staff cuts.

“In an effort to place Twitter on a healthy path, we will go through the difficult process of reducing our global workforce on Friday,” said the email sent on Thursday, seen by Reuters.

Musk, the world’s richest person, is looking to cut around 3,700 Twitter staff, or about half the workforce, as he seeks to slash costs and impose a demanding new work ethic, according to internal plans reviewed by Reuters this week.

Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Twitter said in the email that its offices would be temporarily closed and all badge access suspended in order “to help ensure the safety of each employee as well as Twitter systems and customer data.”

The company said employees who were not affected by the layoffs would be notified via their work email addresses. Staff who had been laid off would be notified with next steps to their personal email addresses, the memo said.

Some employees tweeted their access to the company’s IT system had been blocked and feared whether that suggested they had been laid off.

“Looks like I’m unemployed y’all. Just got remotely logged out of my work laptop and removed from Slack,” tweeted a user with the @SBkcrn account, whose profile is described as former senior community manager at Twitter.

A class action lawsuit was filed on Thursday against Twitter by its employees, who argued the company was conducting mass layoffs without providing the required 60-day advance notice, in violation of federal and California law.

The lawsuit also asked the San Francisco federal court to issue an order to restrict Twitter from soliciting employees being laid off to sign documents without informing them of the pendency of the case.

Musk has directed Twitter’s teams to find up to $1 billion in annual infrastructure cost savings, according to two sources familiar with the matter and an internal Slack message reviewed by Reuters.

He had already cleared out the company’s senior ranks, firing its chief executive and top finance and legal executives. Others, including those sitting atop the company’s advertising, marketing and human resources divisions, departed throughout the past week.

Musk’s first week as Twitter’s owner has been marked by chaos and uncertainty. Two company-wide meetings were scheduled, only to be canceled hours later. Employees told Reuters they were left to piece together information through media reports, private messaging groups and anonymous forums.

The layoffs, which were long expected, have chilled Twitter’s famously open corporate culture that has been lauded by many of its employees.

“If you are in an office or on your way to an office, please return home,” Twitter said in the email on Thursday.

Shortly after the email landed in employee inboxes, hundreds of people flooded the company’s Slack channels to say goodbye, two employees told Reuters. Someone invited Musk to join the channel, the sources said.
