Hello and welcome to our overview of business, financial markets and the global economy.

It's a tough day for Twitter employees as Elon Musk will start massive layoffs just a week after buying the social networking platform.

The offices of the social networks are temporarily closed and employees are waiting to receive an e-mail notification of any dismissal or dismissal. About half of the company's employees could be fired.

The company made the announcement in an email sent to employees on Thursday.

“To give Twitter an edge, we will tackle the difficult process of shrinking our global workforce on Friday.

Musk has already fired several senior Twitter executives, including CEO Parag Agarwal, CFO Ned Segal, and head of legal and political affairs Vijay Gade.

Musk, who bought Twitter for $ 44 billion, is now looking to make the company profitable.

On Thursday, Musk ordered Twitter teams to cut $ 1 billion in annual infrastructure spending by cutting funding for cloud services and servers. He came up with a number of ideas for monetizing Twitter, including plans to charge "validated" badges and create an "app for everything" that can connect multiple platforms.
