Twitter appears to have closed down its only office in Africa located in Accra, Ghana after it sacked its entire African staff. The office had operated remotely for over a year.
The sack happened just days after officially opening the physical office in Ghana, CNN reported.
“The company is reorganizing its operations as a result of a need to reduce costs…. It is with regret that we’re writing to inform you that your employment is terminating as a result of this exercise,” Twitter’s director of people services in Dublin, Ireland told its staff in Africa in the email, the CNN quoted.
Elon Musk, Twitter’s new owner after his $44bn takeover, has embarked on over 50% cut down on staff worldwide.
More than 90% of its staff in India has been sacked.
