Twitter Founder Jack Dorsey's Apologizes Amid Mass Layoffs After Elon Musk's Takeover

Twitter founder Jack Dorsey apologised to the employees of the company on Saturday, a day after the microblogging site laid off nearly 50 per cent of its workforce. In a tweet, Dorsey owned up for the current situation at Twitter and said he realises that many people are “angry with him”.

“Folks at Twitter past and present are strong and resilient. They will always find a way no matter how difficult the moment. I realize many are angry with me. I own the responsibility for why everyone is in this situation: I grew the company size too quickly. I apologize for that,” he said.

“I am grateful for, and love, everyone who has ever worked on Twitter. I don’t expect that to be mutual in this moment…or ever…and I understand,” he added.

Elon Musk, who took over Twitter last week, removed top executives and the board and the laid off roughly half the company’s employees in a bid to cut costs. 

Tesla’s CEO took complete control of Twitter after he bought the company for a whopping USD 44 billion and dissolved the board of directors. This made Musk the sole owner of the company.
