Following the mass layoffs of Twitter’s SMS service by new owner Elon Musk, the company’s co-founder and former chairman, Jack Dorsey, has apologized to employees.
“I realize a lot of people are mad at me,” Dorsey wrote on Twitter on Saturday. He’s responsible for the fact that Twitter employees are now in this situation: “You let the company grow so fast. I apologize for that.”
A week after billionaire Elon Musk took over the company, Twitter laid off about half of its 7,500 employees on Friday. Musk actually launched Twitter management right after the acquisition. Musk acquired Twitter last Thursday for $44 billion.
People past and present on Twitter are strong and resilient. They will always find a way no matter how difficult the moment may be. I realize that a lot of people are angry with me. I take responsibility for why everyone is in this situation: You have grown the size of the company so quickly. I apologize for that.

“The people at Twitter are strong and resilient,” Dorsey wrote of layoffs. They will find a way, even if the situation is difficult right now. Dorsey co-founded the company in 2006 and resigned as CEO last year. In the spring he also retired from the board of directors. (sda/afp)
