After Musk took command of Twitter in a $44 billion arrangement, he terminated Twitter’s chief administration and destroyed its board. Twitter then, at that point, directed four rounds of expansive representative cutbacks, cutting its headcount by around 80%, from an expected 7,800 to around 1,500.
