Twitter employees will find out whether they’re being laid off later today – one week after Elon Musk’s takeover.

The social network’s offices are temporarily closed, and workers will find out their fate by 4pm UK time.

Those who are losing their jobs will receive a message to their personal email address, while employees staying on will get an email to their work account.

An internal memo says: “In an effort to place Twitter on a healthy path, we will go through the difficult process of reducing our global workforce on Friday.”

Twitter said its offices will be temporarily shut and all badge access will be suspended “to help ensure the safety of each employee as well as Twitter systems and customer data.”
