Tanaiste Confirms Twitter Redundancies During Visit To Westmeath

140 staff at Twitter Ireland are to be made redundant.

140 staff at Twitter Ireland are to be made redundant.

The news was confirmed by the Tanaiste Leo Varadkar speaking in Athlone last night.

After days of speculation, the news that certain twitter staff were expecting, was confirmed in public last night.

140 jobs are to go at Twitter after Leo Varadkar's Enterprise department was notified of the cuts by the social media company yesterday.

Twitter employs 500 people in Ireland and is being streamlined to cuts costs.

Twitter is understood to be losing close on four million Euro per day.

Analysts believe the company over-hired staff during the Covid pandemic.

While the company may have to shrink in order to grow again, new demands for increased productivity from the remaining staff could see more people leave the company in the coming months.
