Elon Musk has promised a wide array of changes to Twitter once he takes over later this year.    Before he acquired Twitter, he pledged to bring free speech back to the social media company, along with other changes like an edit button.

Now, Musk has revealed that he plans to fire over 1,000 staffers at Twitter once ownership is transferred to him.  He allegedly plans to fire woke employees who oppose turning Twitter in to a more free speech-friendly platform.

One way he will make Twitter more free speech-friendly is by making it less subject to pressure from advertisers.  Musk has floated a plan to make Twitter users pay a $3 monthly subscription so that the company doesn’t have to adjust its policies according to the preferences of advertisers.

The Daily Mail Reports



“Elon Musk is planning to fire 1,000 staffers at Twitter as soon as his purchase of the social media platform is complete.

It’s believed he will fire many of the firm’s woke staff following the transfer of ownership which will take around six months, after which Musk is likely to wield the ax.

But then within the next three years, Musk anticipates making thousands of new hires, swelling the ranks to around 11,000 employees, up from 7,500 currently.

Much of the new talent is likely to be in the field of engineering.

Numbers at the company would fluctuate rising to 9,225 employees this year before falling to 8,332 in 2023. Then adding a further 2,700 workers by 2025.

Most of the jobs being shelved would occur during the takeover period, according to a pitch deck Musk presented this week to investors and seen by the New York Times”
