Twitter Sacks All Staff in Africa, Closes Office

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.
